Learning Capital College is now AIC.
Learning Capital College has been renamed as Asian International College (AIC). The change of name has been registered with the Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) and is approved by the Council for Private Education (CPE) with effect from April 2011.
All past qualifications issued under Learning Capital College is valid and will continue to be recognised by the various regulatory bodies such as MOE, MSF and the joint MOE-MSF Preschool Qualification Accreditation Committee (PQAC).
With effect from 21 May 2011, all transcripts and certificates will bear the Asian International College name and logo.
But it's really more than just a name change.
At AIC, we’ll continue to provide our students with quality innovative programmes in higher education and professional development. Here are some of the key changes to expect:
1. We have now 3 different Schools; complete with a strong Faculty to serve different needs;
- School of Education
- School of Management
- Centre for Professional Development
The School of Education focuses on igniting the passion and deepening the knowledge and skills of early childhood education professionals. Our degree and diploma programmes extend beyond conventional approaches and combine theory and practical experiences in a truly global setting, allowing our students to be immersed in best practices from around the world.
The School of Management offers full‐time and part‐time degrees validated and awarded by the University of Wales. Our programmes are designed to cater to the needs of executives seeking to go further in the careers. We aim to help enhance their professional skills and knowledge, empowering them towards a fast‐tracked career path.
Our Centre for Professional Development offers short management and leadership courses, workshops and programmes with a difference – for example, the exclusive Singapore Environment Council’s Eco‐Office certification course to help executives and businesses start a meaningful journey as eco‐warriors in the workplace.
2. Our approach to learning is changing:
Flexible delivery of programmes is one of the hallmarks of our operation. A critical factor now is the learning environment and how this can be moulded to accommodate diverse learning styles and increasingly mobile lifestyles. In short, by harnessing the power of technology, we believe personalisation and customisation is now an effective reality.
Commitment to a participatory pedagogy. In the knowledge economy, information is literally at our fingertips. The critical skill is to validate this information and turn it into useable knowledge. The learning that takes place is qualitatively different. At AIC, it is deep learning rather than surface learning we are interested in. Students are active participants in knowledge construction rather than a passive recipient of information. What you learn stays with you, because you learn how to learn and un‐learn!
We call it future‐proof learning ... learning that lasts. These changes represent far more significance and our commitment to the world of education than just the changing of the name itself.
