Adult community education​

The Adult Community Education (ACE) program provides a supportive entry point for people to participate in learning and to transition to volunteering, further education, training and work.

ACE providers in your area can help you to improve your foundation skills in language, literacy, numeracy, computing, and personal skills.

ACE programs are delivered in easy to access, informal community settings. You’ll learn with other adults in small groups, or even get one on one coaching. ACE programs are usually free or low cost.

Skills you can learn include:

  • using a computer
  • English language support
  • preparing to get your Ls – road rules, signs and road markings, and safety
  • communication for work
  • budgeting – setting financial goals, calculating income and living expenses
  • basic home maintenance – safety procedures and emergency situations
  • office computing skills – tables, charts, graphs, word processing and desktop publishing software, and internet.
