SUBJECT: Learn Local Industry Practice Network: Building and Civil Construction

Actions and critical dates

In 2023-2024 the ACFE Board is funding three Learn Local industry practice networks (IPNs).

IPNs are to help increase the delivery of pre-accredited foundation skills training that meets employers’ needs and provides employment opportunities for adult learners in the local community.

IPNs comprise Learn Local providers who have relevant industry field experience and are willing to share their knowledge, resources and skills with other Learn Local providers to realise IPN goals.

IPNs offer peer learning opportunities to Learn Local providers aspiring to engage employers in pre-accredited foundation skills programs that meet their needs and benefit learners with foundation skill acquisition that improves their job prospects.

The Building and Civil Construction IPN is ready to receive expressions of interest.

Learn Local providers interested in exploring opportunities to engage building and civil construction employers in pre-accredited programs that will benefit local learners interested in this field of employment please email the Building and Civil Construction IPN Coordinator Ms Lauren Rizzacasa at lrizzacasa@prace.vic.edu.au (opens in a new window)by 6 October 2023.
