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-improvement. In 2016, FMA partnered with SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) as the sole provider of design programmes within the WSQ Design Skills Framework, the only institution in its sector.
With the aim to further enhance our trainees employability, FMA in 2017 partnered with Workforce Singapore to launch the Professional Conversion Programme for Designers. This programme was designed 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 modular Graphics Design short courses, to specialised UI/UX Programmes to full time Qualification Programmes. At First Media Academy, we are preparing our students to become highly-competent, highly-creative designers for the workplace of the future.
At First Media Academy, we are run by Designers, for Designers.
