National Silver Academy Short Courses By SACE

About National Silver Academy (NSA)
The National Silver Academy (NSA) is a network of post-secondary education institutions (PSEIs) (i.e. ITE, polytechnics, universities and arts institutions) and voluntary welfare organisations (VWOs) that offer learning opportunities for seniors.  Beginning June 2016, seniors aged 50 and above can look forward to attending short courses in areas which are life-skills rather than work-skilled oriented.  For VWO-run courses, the final fee payable – for both Singaporean and Permanent Resident seniors – takes into account the prior support given by the government to VWOs to develop and offer the short courses.
