Industry contextualised literacy and numeracy program

‚ÄčThe Adult, Community and Further Education (ACFE) Board's Learn Local Industry Contextualised Literacy and Numeracy Pre-Accredited Programs Initiative will develop a suite of standardised literacy and numeracy pre-accredited programs for use by Learn Local providers.  

Program aims

  • To build the capability of the Learn Local sector to deliver literacy and numeracy within a vocational context.
  • To build on the high quality pre-accredited literacy and numeracy programs that exist in the Learn Local sector, by choosing a small group to be improved and shared across all providers.
  • To provide standardised pre-accredited programs for the sector to use.
  • To provide additional pre-accredited hours to deliver the new programs.

Expressions of interest (stage 1 of a 2 stage process) 

Learn Local providers are encouraged to express interest in creating one of the first 5 programs by providing a brief overview of their proposed approach in the application form.

Note that a detailed project plan and budget isn't required at this stage.

Learn Local providers that meet the selection criteria outlined in the program guidelines will be invited to prepare a more comprehensive funding proposal under Stage 2, with assistance and feedback available through DET.

Further details and timelines are outlined in the program guidelines.
