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’.
