Learners

MyIAL e-services allows learners to register and make payment online for any IAL programme or workshop. Learners will be able to manage their enrolments by submitting requests (i.e.: Rescheduling of training or assessment) and view their attendance and assessment results. 

Corporate Representatives

MyIAL e-services allows corporate representatives to see a summary view of all registered employees. Corporate Representatives will be able to view their personalised inbox for payment and status tracking, manage their employees enrolments by submitting requests (i.e.: Rescheduling of training or assessment) and accessing employees' attendance and assessment results. 

ENROLMENT

Learners are expected to take responsibility of their learning journey in IAL to benefit fully from the programme. Full attendance for all classes is therefore strongly encouraged. Absence, as a result of unforeseen circumstances, has to be substantiated by medical certificate or valid documentary proof. Learners unable to meet the minimum requirement of 75% (per module) are required to reschedule the cohort. Rescheduling charges and application information can be found in Question 3 below.

No, you may choose another cohort which best suits your availability. For instance, for ACTA M1, M2 and M3 are interdependent modules. Learners will have to complete all three modules before attending the combined assessment. During the assessment, the assessor, who is also the trainer, may assess the learner throughout the three modules to give a holistic view of the assessment. The same trainer/assessor may also monitor the learners’ work in all the modules thus far and hence, it will not be beneficial for learners to enter a standalone module.

Please submit your request to reschedule your programme via our e-services at MyIAL. Please note that a non-refundable administration fee of S$53.50 (inclusive of GST) applies for every change request. The next available slot will be offered for programme/module rescheduling request.

A maximum of 3 rescheduling for training and/or assessment requests are allowed per programme. The request would not be processed if the candidature period has expired.  

 

There will be no replacement or make-up lesson for participants who have missed a class. Learners who are unable to meet the attendance requirements will be requested to reschedule to another cohort. A maximum of 3 rescheduling requests for training and/or assessment allowed per programme

For Adult Education Network (AEN) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshops, you are encouraged to keep a lookout for future runs of similar workshop or sign up for another that meets your interest. 

ASSESSMENT

You may submit your rescheduling request via our e-services at MyIAL at least 5 calendar days prior to assessment. The rescheduled assessment should be taken within 4 weeks from original date. Upon IAL’s approval, the new assessment date will be final and no further change requests will be processed.

Please note that a non-refundable administration fee of S$53.50 (inclusive of GST) applies for every change request. 

A maximum of 3 rescheduling for training or assessment requests are allowed per programme. The request would not be processed if the candidature period has expired.

Yes, you can submit a request to retake your assessment via our e-services at MyIAL in the event of an ‘NYC’ outcome. A maximum of 1 reassessment attempt is allowed.

If a 'NYC' outcome is received on the reassessment attempt, you will be required to retake the module at full fees without funding/grant. This has to be taken within 3 months from date of last assessment.

If no attempts are made to retake module, candidate is deemed to have dropped out of the programme and full fees without funding/grant would be applicable upon re-enrolment into the same programme.

To re-take module/programme, full fees shall apply, as funding is only applicable for the first time enrolment.

POST TRAINING ADMINISTRATION

Upon completion of the required assessment(s) for attaining the SOA and qualification, you will be able to download the electronic-certificate (e-cert) from the MySkillsFuture (MySF) Portal at www.myskillsfuture.sg after 4 to 6 weeks.
