SKILLING YOUR WORKFORCE
Get access to a wealth of learning opportunities to skill your workforce right in your own neighbourhood.
We support small business owners and their staff by providing accredited and non-accredited training that is subsidised by the NSW Government under the Adult and Community Education (ACE) Program. Funding of the ACE Program is granted to approved ACE Providers to deliver training and support that cannot be effectively addressed through Smart and Skilled programs.
The ACE Program aims to promote access and increase vocational education and training outcomes for those who experience significant barriers to training and employment. The ACE Program provides funding towards training up to and including Certificate III level and is designed to target disadvantaged students, and students in regional and remote communities in NSW.
The ACE Program also offers support to small business owners and their staff by providing fully subsidised accredited and non-accredited training in targeted courses in information technology, business services or foundation skills. This category is referred to as Targeted Skills for Small Business (TSB).
