Actions and critical dates

Moving pre-accredited training online

Online teaching and learning is forecast to become an embedded aspect of post secondary education beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

To ensure all Learn Local providers can consider and offer this option as relevant the ACFE Board has funded the VET Development Centre (VDC) to rerun the professional learning program 'Moving Pre-accredited Training Online' for trainers new to online delivery.

'Moving Pre-accredited Training Online' provides step-by- step instruction on how to implement a selected pre-accredited program in blended or online format.

Topics covered will include:

  • Selecting online learning infrastructure at little or no cost
  • Building online teaching and learning resources for pre-accredited training
  • Effective online teaching practice.

The 2022 'Moving Pre-accredited Training Online' program begins 23 March and runs over 13 weeks to 15 June 2022.

Participants will engage once a week in a webinar, virtual workshop or self-paced learning module. Workshops and webinars will be recorded for repeat access and there will be online facilitator support between sessions.

Participants will need to commit a total of about 20 hours over the 13 weeks to complete the program.

Places are available for up to 60 participants.

Learn Local pre-accredited trainers new to blended or online learning can register now in the 13 week 'Moving Pre-accredited Training Online' professional development program on the VET Development Centre website.External Link
