TLS Academy Pte Ltd has been awarded the EduTrust certification by the Committee for Private Education (CPE), a government agency that regulates the Private Education sector in Singapore.
The EduTrust Certification Scheme is a quality assurance scheme to distinguish private schools that are able to maintain a high standard of quality in the overall provision of education services and to make continual improvements that lead to positive student outcomes.
There are 7 criteria under the EduTrust Certification Scheme: Management Commitment and Responsibilities, Corporate Governance and Administration, External Recruitment Agents, Student Protections and Support Services, Academic Processes and Student Assessment, Achievement of Student and Graduate Outcomes, Quality Assurance, and Monitoring and Results.
With the Edu-Trust certification, international students can benefit from the Singapore private education in the country. TLS Academy can help foreigners living outside of Singapore to apply for a Student’s Pass to study in the country.
Individualised and Holistic Education
At TLS Academy, learning is individualised to suit each and every student’s pace. Every student is encouraged to learn more actively and independently and nurtured to love learning that stays with them throughout their lives.
The Singapore private school’s holistic and individualised approach to learning allows it to cater to each child’s academic, social and psychological needs. The needs of each student are met at their individual performance levels. Each student advances through the curriculum at their optimum rate of achievement. Depending on the student’s rate of academic development and level of motivation, he or she may graduate before or beyond his or her chronological age.
“At TLS Academy, we see every child as a gem, being turned over to us to be polished. Every child is created by God as a unique individual, with specific learning styles. This calls for an approach and a programme that is designed and geared to meet the learning needs of every individual child.
We see potential in every child that comes to us and we endeavour to bring out the very best in him/ her. Our staff is trained to identify the sore points, treat them and then strengthen them. The children eventually become independent learners. They were given fish, but, eventually, they become fishers.” said Principal, Ms. Esther Koh.
Eligibility & Enrolment
TLS Academy is open to receive students from Singapore and overseas.
The basic entry requirements for TLS Academy are:
