Republic Polytechnic has partnered the National Silver Academy (NSA) to offer a wide range of learning opportunities for seniors to learn for interest and stay active. Beginning June 2016, seniors aged 50 and above can look forward to attending short courses, exam-free modules and ad hoc learning opportunities offered by RP.
Short Courses are geared toward life-skills-oriented courses. Eligible seniors aged 50 above will receive a subsidy of up to 50% off the course fee. Exam-free Modules are drawn from existing full-qualification programmes offered by RP for a token fee. These modules allow seniors to attend alongside regular students who are taking these modules for credit, but they do not need to sit for examinations. Ad Hoc Learning Opportunities refer to intergenerational learning programme which pairs students with seniors to learn about selected topics. One such example was the rpBuddy podiatry workshop targeted at seniors in North West Zone as part of RP's SG50 celebration event last year.
