Ad hoc learning opportunities include the Intergenerational Learning Programme (ILP) and short talks offered by our partner institutions.
The ILP aims to encourage intergenerational bonding by matching youths and seniors in a group learning environment. Through practical lessons such as Skype, Facebook, managing health and laughter yoga, seniors acquire new knowledge while youths share theirs and learn character building. Past topics offered under the ILP include learning a musical instrument and how to use social media. Course participants can participate in ILP for free.
Short talks are typically 1 to 2 hours long and are free.
Singaporeans and Permanent Residents aged 50 and above are eligible to sign up for the Intergenerational Learning Programme (ILP).
For short talks, please refer to the specific details for eligibility criteria.
The registration process may differ depending on each course provider. Please note that successful registration does not guarantee a place in the course/talk. Applicants are advised to read the course details or check in with course providers as to the detailed process for registration and information on notification of successful talk/course placement.
