TLA Graduation Ceremony 2015

Graduates - Integrated Logistics Management

Congratulations to TLA Graduates for their achievements!

This year’s TLA Graduation Ceremony was held on 23 September 2015 at Furama City Centre Hotel. More than 60 graduands, lecturers, course conveners, Board of Directors and sponsors smartly dressed up for this happy occasion. Broad smiles were spotted on the graduates’ cheerful faces, showing a deep sense of achievements after sheer hard work and conscientious study.  The Academy shared their joy in reaping the sweet fruits of their labour.


In the welcome speech by Mr Thomas Sim – First Deputy Chairman of SLA and Director of TLA, Mr Sim shared the recent developments of The Logistics Academy.  He was happy to announce that TLA has successfully aligned TLA Diploma programmes to the WSQ Logistics Framework under WDA’s revised criteria for “Certifiable Skills Training” by qualifying a total of 24 participants for Category B enhanced funding scheme through the inaugural Assessment-Only-Pathway (AOP) in May and September this year.  The AOP incorporates a hybrid of written and case-based elements to assess for competency–based performance which complements and provides evidence of TLA graduates’ competency in their respective diploma program of study. He also highlighted a few new course titles launched under Continuous Learning Programme (CLP) to meet the increasing demand to acquire specialized domain knowledge in a shorter duration. These new course titles include Specialist Certificate in Chemical Logistics Management (3 Days), Specialist Certificate in Effective Purchasing Management (3 Days) and Workshop on Project Forwarding (1 Day).

Mr Sim was pleased to announce that UniSIM has waived the 5 GCE “O” Level credits for direct admission into its Bachelor of Science in Logistics & Supply Chain Management degree programme on the sole credit of TLA Advanced Diploma in Supply Chain Management. He rounded off by declaring that TLA is committed to improving as a training provider and giving its learners a pleasant experiential journey. To enhance engagements and productivity, TLA launched its own website TLA.EDU.SG during the ceremony which serves as a community for lecturers and students.

Amidst applause, a total of 4 top diploma graduates were presented the Best Achiever awards.  SLA Scholar Mr Ong Hui Si from KC Dat (Singapore) Pte Ltd also shared his learning journey in UniSIM to motivate TLA graduates in their pursuits for further study.

I would like to say thank you TLA. Thanks for taking us here today. It’s never been easy for us … rushing our jobs to attend class after work especially when we met for project discussion and preparation for the examination. Graduation is not an end goal in itself, it is instead a part of the lifelong journey. With strong determination, I believe that we can achieve more in our future study and life.”
