Senior Academy

Senior Academy Certificate

The People’s Association (PA) launched ‘PA Senior Academy’ on 17 February 2015 with its key mission to encourage more seniors, 50 years old and above, to pursue lifelong learning aspirations and lead an active lifestyle by providing accessible and affordable senior- friendly curriculum/programme.

The SA programme provides a platform for participants to pursue their interests with like-minded participants and fulfil their lifelong aspirations. For 2019, in partnership with corporate partners like Facebook, Visa, and POSB, the PA Senior Academy will be offering the new ’Senior Academy Certificate’ course programme – a credit-based graduation system, of which:

  1. A wide range of popular IT, skills-based, and wellness courses (conducted in English, and Mandarin), preparing Seniors in tackling the challenges of managing IT gadgets, and enhancing their quality of life.
  2. Over a span of 12 months, seniors who achieve at least 10 credits (1 credit – 1 completed course) will get to graduate with a “Basic Certificate”. For seniors who achieve 15 credits and above, they will graduate with an “Advanced Certificate”.
