Computing for Seniors (Windows 10)
About National Silver Academy (NSA) and Singapore Association for Continuing Education (SACE).
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.
The Singapore Association for Continuing Education (SACE) is a registered charity with MOE. It offers over 30 courses under the National Silver Academy, most of which are highly subsidised for Singaporeans & Permanent Residents aged 50 and above. SACE serves the continuing learning needs of adults of all ages.
