AGILE (or its former name, Taylor’s Learning Academy) was established in 2015 and it is part of the Taylor’s Republic initiative to promote excellence in shared services for the Group. Its primary aim is to elevate the teaching and education quality for all educators in the Group.
In the short term, its target audience would be Taylor’s educators, while in the long term, AGILE will also open its training and initiatives to educators across Malaysia and the region, helping elevate teaching and learning for the learning community in the region and globally. This in part, is to continue the reputation of Taylor’s as the exemplar education company in Malaysia and Asia, and elevating its stature at the global stage.
