Apply to be listed as an ACE Provider

To be listed as an eligible ACE program provider:

  • applications to become an ACE listed provider for the 2014-15 funding round closed on 31 December 2013.

Apply for ACE program funding

Once your application to become a listed ACE provider is assessed and approved, you will be notified that you are eligible to apply for ACE Foundation Skills Grant funding. We will also tell you about the application process. The application forms can be found below.

Read the ACE Program grant funding guidelines to find out what information you will be asked to provide in your application.

The State Government made changes to the ACE Foundation Skills Grant funding from 2014-15. Eligible listed ACE providers that have a history of continuity and achievement of ACE program outcomes (between 2011-12 and 2013-14 funding cycles) were invited to apply for triennial funding. This process has finished and ACE providers recommended for triennial funding have been notified. The next round of triennial funding will open in 2017-18.

All listed ACE providers who were not offered triennial funding are invited to apply for annual contestable accredited and/or non-accredited funding.

Applications open on 21 February 2014 and close on 28 March 2014.

See Adult community education for the list of approved ACE Providers in 2013-14.
