How to become a registered Learn Local organisation

Registered Learn Local providers deliver quality vocational courses for adults that addresses the particular needs of those adults who have experienced barriers to education in the past and need some help to take the first step back to education, training and or employment.

Not-for-profit organisations can apply to be registered with the Adult, Community and Further Education (ACFE) Board. Registered providers are eligible to receive Victorian Government funding to deliver pre-accredited programs and to apply for a range of other supports. This pool of funds supports providers to build their capacity to deliver outcomes for the ACFE Board’s priority learner groups.

The ACFE Board has developed guidelines and criteria for registration as a Learn Local provider.

Business and governance status assessment

As part of the ACFE Board's funds allocation process, Learn Local providers are required to have an independent accountant to undertake an assessment of their business and governance status. This includes identifying if they have the business systems in place to manage a funding relationship with Victorian Government. The ACFE Board has developed guidelines which set out the process and the criteria for assessing the business and governance status of registered providers.
