ACE expands to fill training needs
BRIGHTER, fresher, younger is the new look for ACE North Coast Community College, according to business development manager Gillian Jones.
Page MP Janelle Saffin and Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell attended the Lismore launch of the new ACE brand with a host of training and job network providers and accounting firms.
“We have developed our brand to the business community,” Ms Jones said.
With business training courses, Recognition of Prior Learning and e-learning, the community college is well place to meet the needs of the business community.
Ms Jones explained they also run a Certificate IV in financial services that is a requirement for professional staff who prepare BAS statements.
ACE Lismore centre manager Anne Stapleton said the new look was more modern and promoted business training for busy people.
They are still keeping the words Adult Community Education as part of their branding because that is how the public know them, she said.
“As a community college, we offer a wide variety of financial, children’s services, community and aged care courses,” Ms Stapleton said.
As the third largest community college in NSW, ACE North Coast courses are tailored to meet business needs.
“Everybody needs small bits of computer training,” Ms Jones said. Trainers can come direct to business premises if requested.
If there is a business need not currently met, Ms Stapleton would like to know about it, and she is confident ACE North Coast can find a way to provide the right training.
