Always Advancing

The biggest disruption that we face today, is that the world is changing faster than we are. Always Advancing towards the future is our response to the rapid rate of change.

IAL believes that the need to seamlessly and continuously upgrade ourselves through Training and Adult Education (TAE), will be critical in allowing our people and organisations to stay relevant in a fast-changing and dynamic world.

As the national institute for adult educators, IAL plays a strategic role in meeting the changing market needs of enterprises and the workforce. Our five-year strategic roadmap Oct 2020 — Dec 2025 encapsulates our aspirations in enabling a future-ready workforce through TAE, as we strive towards our four key goals, underpinned by the four strategic pillars of IAL.
