Adult and community education (ACE) program for business and communities
Local communities and small businesses can access adult and community education courses tailored to their needs.
The ACE program is dedicated to delivering sustainable outcomes for learners by creating fit-for-purpose and safe learning environments. Our commitment is demonstrated in the way we deliver the ACE Program and hold all involved responsible, including ourselves.
Courses for communities
NSW communities can access a range of general interest and nationally recognised adult and community education courses.
ACE courses are useful if you run a small business and want to improve your staff’s skills, or if you’re a community member and want new skills for life or work.
See About adult and community education for an introduction to how you can benefit from ACE courses and how to enrol if you find a course you're interested in.
Contact your local community college to find out about courses offered in your local area.
Tech Savvy Seniors
The Tech Savvy Seniors program is a NSW government initiative which helps older people develop their technology skills. It is offered at local libraries and community colleges. This includes courses in community languages such as Arabic, Mandarin and Hindi.
