Adult Community Education (ACE) provides an array of individual interest and vocational focused education and training. These programs foster the development of skills required for individuals to participate fully in their communities and in the economy.

ACE also contributes significantly to the engagement of learners who experience disadvantage or who are disengaged from learning by providing access to foundation skills and pathways into further learning, community participation and work.

The national Ministerial Declaration on ACE (PDF, 1.2MB) supports a collaborative approach to Adult Community Education, particularly in relation to its role in the provision of vocationally focused education and training and fostering the development of skills required for individuals.

The National Foundation Skills Strategy for adults (NFSS) was launched in September 2012. The NFSS is a 10-year framework which brings a national focus to improving education and employment outcomes for working age Australians with low levels of language, literacy, numeracy and employability skills. The NFSS recognises the role of ACE in improving foundation skills.
