THE literacy and numeracy skills of up to 5000 South Australians will be improved through new funding in the adult community education sector for 2018/19.
About 50 organisations across the state will share in $2.67m, delivering 67 Adult Community Education (ACE) Program courses to over 5000 participants across South Australia.
The 67 projects will support communities by providing better connections to further education, training and employment through three-year funding arrangements.
The ACE Program delivers quality foundation skills training in accessible and inclusive community settings, unlocking the potential of individuals experiencing barriers to learning, training and work.
