Subject: Information for Learn Locals on Just-in-Time Industry Partnership initiative in 2023.
Look out for refreshed guidelines for Just in Time 2023 to be issued in week of 6 March 2023.
The ACFE Board-funded Just-in-Time Industry Partnership initiative will continue in 2023 based on refreshed guidelines.
Aspects of the 2021-2022 Just-in-Time guidelines have been updated to get the most out of 2023 projects.
The refreshed guidelines for Just-in-Time 2023 will be issued in the week of 6 March 2023.
Thereafter expressions of Interest (EOI) for 2023 Just-in-Time projects will be open continuously.
The guidelines will include dates at which applications received will be evaluated for grant funding.
Just-in-Time is a response to the elements in the Ministerial Statement The Future of Adult Community Education 2020-25 and ACFEB Strategy 2020-2025 that encourage Learn Local providers to partner with industry employers for the benefit of their learners.
Just-in-Time is for Learn Local providers who have an emerging or established partnership with an employer or group of employers with an immediate entry-level (ACSF 1-2) skills need in their business and for which a pre-accredited training solution can be developed that helps educationally disadvantaged adults get a job or workers vulnerable to unemployment keep their jobs.
