Funded Programs

Government Funded Programs

As a not-for-profit social enterprise, Sydney Community College has, at the heart of its mission, the provision of affordable and accessible education and training programmes that develop individual and community capacity and support inclusivity. To achieve this through our Registered Training Organisation (RTO), the College pursues a strong quality assurance, compliance, consumer protection and student support ethos and partners with like organisations and government to deliver learning programmes for those with tailored or specific needs who might otherwise miss out.

One such Government funded initiative is the Adult and Community Education Community Services (ACE) programme funded by the New South Wales Government’s Department of Education. The ACE programme is part of the vocational education and training (VET) system to help people gain the skills necessary to find a job and/or to advance their careers. The ACE programme, provided by providers such as Sydney Community College, is designed to improve the participation rates in training opportunities.

The College is currently funded to provide training for disadvantaged learners living in identified areas of Western Sydney. For eligibility criteria and latest courses go to Funded Programs.

Please also take the time to read our Training Policies and our Quality Assurance System (QAS) information to understand how we can assist you in your training needs. Our RTO Manager is our Consumer Protection Officer and can be contacted on 02-87527599 or email rto@sydneycommunitycollege.edu.au
