Funded Programmes

Government Funded Training

As a 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, the College partners with like organisations and government to deliver learning programmes for those with tailored or specific needs who might otherwise miss out.

One such initiative is the Adult and Community Education Community Services Obligation (ACE CSO) programme funded by the New South Wales Governments Department of Industry through its training services division. The ACE CSO is funded under the Governments Smart and Skilled vocational education and training (VET) system to help people gain the skills necessary to find a job and advance their careers. The CSO funding to ACE providers such as Sydney Community College is designed to improve the participation rates in training opportunities for disadvantaged learners. Our courses are for those living in the Cabramatta/Fairfield and Canterbury/Lakemba areas of Western Sydney.
