Centre for Learning and Performance (CLaP)




Centre for Learning and Performance (CLaP), a practice-based and applied research centre of IAL is aimed at developing organisation capability in workplace-based learning and promoting individual and enterprise performance. 

Workplace-based learning is an integral component of Singapore’s SkillsFuture agenda to promote skills mastery and utilisation, and underpins the shift towards work-learn programmes by education institutions. Learning that takes place at authentic workplace environments enables immediate learner application and minimises disruptions to business operations in a manpower lean environment. 


"The IAL partnership helped us identify organisational systems and processes that could be enhanced to support workplace learning in our people's daily work activities. The structured job shadowing approach was something we found to be very useful during the boot camp and we intend to roll it out to the rest of the organisation." 


- Mr Leong Shee Wing 

General Manager, Business Development, E M Services



Through strategic partnerships with enterprises and education institutions as well as capability-building initiatives for training and adult education (TAE) practitioners, CLaP aims to develop evidence-informed models, case studies and tools. These resources and capabilities support the work of our Centre’s associate Workplace Learning Specialists as they develop performance-centric and sustainable workplace-based learning solutions to support our partners’ needs in areas such as enhanced productivity, employee engagement and implementing effective work-learn programmes.
