The Learn Local sector has demonstrated agility and innovation in transitioning to online learning to support learners and their engagement during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ACFE Board agreed to share existing high-quality online and digital learning programs and apply a quality assurance process for curating those programs.

The Department wants to establish a centralised collection of technology-mediated pre-accredited courses, designed and developed by Learn Locals and available on the Learn Local Secure Portal. Initially, we are looking for 4 to 6 good online or blended learning programs.

The materials can be on any pre-accredited topic and targeted to any one of the ACFE Board's priority learner groups as outlined in the four quadrants of the ACFE Board strategy.

There is no prescribed course length.

All Learn Local providers interested in applying for this initiative need to read the below guidelines and submit the attached expression of interest form by COB on Wednesday 13 April 2022.

If you would like to know more about this initiative, you can register for an online information session on Tuesday 29 March 2022, 10.30am to 11.30am. You can register for this session at this link: Online Best Practice registration
