The Home Team plays a crucial role in keeping Singapore safe and secure. We prepare and train for many scenarios every day, and it is only during actual crises that we will know how prepared, or not prepared, we are, and how well we have trained for the situation. The ongoing COVID-19 crisis is a timely reminder of the importance of training and learning. But even as we tackle the virus and its impact, we must press on with our training and upskilling on other fronts, to ensure that Home Team officers continue to be agile and ever ready for whatever new challenges come our way.

Chief Executive's Foreword

Dear Home Team colleagues and valued partners,

On behalf of the Home Team Academy (HTA), I would like to thank you for taking time to view our Workplan Seminar 2020 microsite.

The ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation has reinforced the need for us to always be prepared in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environment. This is where our investment in training, such as in the areas of crisis management, leadership development, incidence responses and operating as one Home Team (HT), are put to the test. In this regard, the HT and HTA have risen well to the challenges. For example, HTA officers, with the support of our HT counterparts, have provided strong support for the Whole-of-Government (WOG) efforts to manage the spread of COVID-19 since 30 January 2020. We did the extraordinary by being the first government agency to operate a Government Quarantine Facility, housing for relocated migrant workers and a Dormitory Isolation Facility concurrently within HTA’s premises, while playing our role as the Corporate University of the HT. HTA and the HT will continue to drive Training & Learning (T&L) amid a ‘new normal’.
