Pre-accredited Quality Framework

This is a quality improvement mechanism and curriculum framework that supports teachers and managers plan, develop, teach and review pre-accredited courses. It incorporates a variety of new resources including an updated A-frame.

Professional development for pre-accredited practitioners

The Adult, Community and Further Education (ACFE) Board approved the Professional Development Strategy 2019-22 (PD Strategy) in June 2019. The PD strategy will support all Pre-accredited training practitioners and is applicable to anyone who is employed in the Learn Local sector delivering pre-accredited training and supporting educationally disadvantaged learners. This includes teachers, trainers, tutors, administrators, managers, coordinators and committees of management.

Pre-accredited work experience

Pre-Accredited Work Experience is industry-hosted work experience, supervised by a Learn Local provider trainer, which exposes learners to employability skills in a real world setting.  It links directly to the Pre-Accredited Quality Framework and the pre-accredited A-Frame.  Pre-Accredited Work Experience is designed to be a ‘step up’ program which will prepare learners for future accredited training and employment. The ACFE Board has released Pre-Accredited Work Experience guidelines based on current best practice in the Learn Local sector.
