Silver Infocomm Junction Courses (SIJ)

The Silver Infocomm Initiative (SII) aims to bridge the digital divide among seniors by addressing differences in educational background, language and infocomm competencies. The programme seeks to promote IT awareness and literacy among seniors so that they can be actively engaged in the digital age.

As a senior-friendly infocomm learning hub appointed by IMDA, Agape Village offers affordable infocomm training and a customised curriculum for seniors. Tutorials are also available for them to enjoy an in-depth learning experience and SkillsFuture Credit can be used for all courses.

These courses are for all seniors 50 years old and above.
