Our Departments

Our Departments:

Each and every branch of the SLA has been furnished with the following departments—that work independently but under the umbrella of the headquarter team—for streamlining the day to day activities and to ensure smooth functioning:

Administration Department: It deals with all administrative affairs and is headed by an administrative officer.

General Services: To cater for the general services needs of academies and is supervised by dedicated GS officers.

Transport Department: Under the command of independent transport officers, it provides a safe, reliable and decent transportation to students and staff.

Security Department: Top priority is given to the safety and security of students and staff and thus each academy has its fool proof security arrangements planned and implemented by a central security department headed by a security officer. Trained and fully armed guards are recruited for the purpose.

The Philosophy:

The idea of Shams London Academy was conceived by Mr. Shams Khan, the Chairman of Shams Group International in 2004 after returning from London. Philosophy behind the idea was to contribute towards the development of Afghanistan and to facilitate children of the country with modern education and to train/groom them for taking a leading role as Nation Builders of tomorrow. Moreover, the setup has provided direct employment to almost “1000 staff till date and the number will automatically increase with increase in number of academies. Further more, indirect employment in the form of contractors and suppliers is an added feature thus keeping the youth and general public away from negative tendencies and providing a positive path—that is the requirement of today’s Afghanistan.
We are also proudly educating over 10,000 students till date & thousands of other students have been graduated from last 20 years.

Welfare Factor:

SLA also has an added feature of welfare for the poor and needy children. All academies under SLA provide scholarships that include 100% fee waiver for the deserving students, part waiver, annual talent scholarships and 100% fee waiver for kids of faculty members. But that is not all. A grand scholarship awaits the “best student of the year” are based upon academic excellence, personal discipline, teachers’ assessment and a review of all years through which the student has sailed through and reached the apex. The best student will be sponsored for higher education in England and all expenses incur under this scheme will be met by SLA.
