Established as the training arm of the First Media Group of Companies, First Media Academy (FMA) focuses on encouraging lifelong learning and enhancing employability. With our group’s diverse involvement within the design industry, FMA is able to identify key essential elements to be implemented into its design curriculum.
First Media Academy was established in 2013 as a centre for continuous improvement with a focus in design. The centre provides retraining, skill enhancement and employability programmes for those seeking career advancement and self upgrading programmes. In 2015, FMA partnered with the Workforce Singapore (WSG) as the sole provider of design programmes within the Visual Communications Framework, the only institution in its sector.
In 2017, FMA launched the Professional Conversion Programme in partnership with the newly established government arm, Workforce Singapore (WSG) to aid career switching via re- training in design and on-job-training programmes.
We aim to provide a holistic ethos in all our courses, from Graphics Design short courses to the Designpreneur Scholarship Programme, preparing our students to become highly-competent employees in their future workplaces.
At First Media Academy, we are run by Designers, for Designers.
