ANNEX 1: ABOUT THE 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 community-based organisations (CBOs) that offer learning opportunities for seniors. Beginning June 2016, seniors aged 50 and above can attend short courses which touch on a wide range of life-skills in addition to work-skills.
For courses run by community-based organisations, the final fee payable by seniors (both Singaporeans and PRs) takes into account the support given by the government to community-based organisations to develop and offer the short courses.
