                                         What is ACET?

ACET is Gloucestershire County Council’s Adult Continuing
Education & Training service, and is mainly funded by
Gloucestershire Learning and Skills Council and Gloucestershire
County Council.

ACET works in partnership with colleges, education providers and
more than 200 community organisations to make adult education
widely available. It acts as a conduit for local organisations to
access funding for innovative learning projects. Through a network
of 8 district-based consortia, grass roots organisations are able to
contribute to, and influence the content and delivery of community
education. ACET supports consortia in their management of
learning projects, and employs a team of development workers to
co-ordinate local activities.

ACET works with arts and community centres, and other
organisations such as schools and Early Years Centres to develop
successful approaches to Family Learning. In partnership with
Gloucestershire County Council’s Economic Development Unit, it
seeks to promote lifelong learning initiatives that contribute to
widening participation, social inclusion, and economic
regeneration.

Community-based learning contributes to workforce development,
and can play an important role in raising the aspirations and
achievements of Gloucestershire people.

If you want to know more about ACET and its activities, please call
Jim Austin (Head of ACET) on 01452 425418.

1.       SOCIAL INCLUSION

 ACET is trying to promote Social Inclusion in Gloucestershire through funding
Widening Participation development projects.
ACET wishes to develop ways of reaching and delivering to new learners and
learners from targeted groups and communities and draw them into regular
learning activity. We can do this by working with you in funding development
projects which both assist us with ‘action research’ and which:

Engage new learners in new learning opportunities
   Reach and work with adults who haven’t traditionally taken part in learning
    opportunities (See in this pack – Priority Groups).

Promote active new partners:
   Involve new organisations in playing a part in Adult and Community
    Learning (ACL).

Meet local needs:
   Provide resources to identify needs which learning can help meet, especially
     in priority wards (see this Pack).
   Respond to these imaginatively with quality assured work.

Help us to learn and share lessons (Action Research):
   Learn lessons from planning and delivering development projects and
     communicate these to providers, other partners, the county Learning
     Partnership and the Learning + Skills Council.
   Learn lessons for good practice in widening participation from the learners
     involved in these projects.

Listen to learners and communities:
    Promote ways in which learners and communities can influence the learning
     opportunities available to them - promote learning, which is responsive.

Celebrate Learning and Adult Learners’ Achievements
   Deliver and / or participate in events to celebrate and promote adult and
     community learning and the achievements of learners
   Support Adult Learning Festivals such as Adult Learners’ or Family Learning
     Weeks.

Build local capacity:
   Work with organisations and groups to develop the skills and systems
     needed to deliver quality learning opportunities.
   Involve organisations in 'peer inspection' of work.
   Prepare organisations to take on possible contracted work where this is
     wanted.

2.       THE GLOUCESTERSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL ADULT
         AND CONTINUING EDUCATION SERVICE

         Strategic Objectives (2004/05)

     1. To identify the barriers to learning for adults in the county
        and develop strategies and programmes to meet the needs
        of the community in overcoming these barriers.

     2. To ensure that there is a flexible and responsive delivery of
        programmes that lead to wider participation and progression
        in adult learning.

     3. To ensure that a co-ordinated programme of support for
        learners will be promoted to help adults participate, achieve,
        and make appropriate progression.

     4. To ensure that the curriculum is reviewed and revised to
        meet the developing needs of adult learning.

     5. To ensure that the service is responsive to the developing
        national and local priorities for adult learning and takes steps
        to promote in particular, basic skills, widening participation,
        family learning provision, neighbourhood renewal,
        citizenship, IT skills at all levels and modern foreign
        languages.

     6. To place the quality of learning for individuals as the highest
        priority and work to enable the availability of learning for all
        within the county.

     7. To ensure that resources are secured and effectively
        managed.


Please refer (Section H of Application Forms) to the relevant
strategic objective(s), which apply to your project when writing your
application for project funding.

 Adults with a learning difficulty

 Younger men and unemployed men over 50

 Unemployed people, benefit claimants or people looking to return to work
  or learning (returners)

5.      CONSORTIUM PROJECTS: PRIORITIES


      Reaching new learners and widening participation

     Trying out initiatives designed to involve harder to reach geographical
     communities or groups who are underrepresented in adult and community
     learning and at risk of social exclusion.
     (see: Priority Wards, Priority Groups)

      Capacity Building

     Projects designed to build the skills, contacts and influence of the Consortia
     and/or their members; projects which will develop the ability to offer
     community-based learning.

      Listening to Learners and Communities

     Projects designed to promote learner/community involvement in the
     Consortia and which help us listen to learners and identify needs.

      Celebrating Adult and Community Learning and the Achievements of
       Adult Learners

     Projects designed to deliver events and programmes and festivals which
     raise public awareness of the value of adult and community learning, offer
     (e.g.) taster activity and which celebrate learners’ achievements. These may
     link to such national initiatives as Adult Learners’ Week. This type of project
     must be submitted by a partnership of organisations with one lead body
     responsible.


6.      FAMILY LEARNING: PRIORITIES

     Projects in this category aim to get adults and children learning as or within a
     family or to help parents/carers learn how to support their children’s learning.
     They have two main aims:

      To develop the skills or knowledge of the adult and child
      To help parents/carers to be able to support their children’s learning and
       development more actively and with greater confidence and to be able to
       understand why that support is important.

        Projects can include curriculum development, new delivery mechanisms
        and promotional activities (Family Learning Week/Adult Learners’ Week).

       parents/carers.
      To improve the ability of parents/carers to help their children.
      To help children acquire literacy, language and numeracy skills.

     There is a schedule of Learning & Skills Council approved Family Literacy,
     Language and Numeracy programmes that may be bid for.


8.      ETHNIC MINORITY ACHIEVEMENT GRANT: PRIORITIES

      Increasing Black and Minority Ethnic community participation in
       learning.
      Raising levels of achievement in learning.
      Projects that could be supported include curriculum development,
       developing new delivery mechanisms and promotional activities, which
       lead to the recruitment of new learners.


9.      SCHOOL LINKS: PRIORITIES

     These projects provide Access to Learning programmes in the community
     and aim to:

      Help schools develop their learning role for the wider community.
      Help local learners develop confidence in learning through an
       appropriate curriculum, which includes Information, Advice and
       Guidance together with Literacy, Language and Numeracy Support.


10.     1ST STEPS: PRIORITIES

12.     DATA COLLECTION REQUIREMENTS

Learner Detail Forms: (supplied by ACET)

Learners must fill in Learner Detail Forms for any widening participation
development project. ACET’s funding is dependent on this.

In some instances this may be accompanied by a supplementary enrolment form.

It is important that learners sign the Learner Detail Forms and that the project tutor
or other responsible worker also signs.

ACET has worked with Art Shape Ltd to produce an alternative Learner Detail
Form which may be suitable for adults with (e.g.) learning difficulties. Please
enquire if this may be of interest to you.

Registers: (supplied by ACET)

A register must be taken of all learners for any project which involves them,
recording attendance and absences / withdrawals.

Project Reports: (Pro-Formas supplied by ACET in Grant Aid Acceptance Pack,
supplied at the time of project approval – electronic copies can be requested)

You will be required to submit a brief interim report (Projects over £500) and a
final report at the end of your widening participation development project.

Please return your learner detail forms and registers to:
Peter Hancock, Gloucestershire County Council ACET Service, Quayside Wing,
Shire Hall, Westgate St, Gloucester GL1 2TP.

Please return your project report forms to: Asiyah Patel, Gloucestershire County
Council ACET Service, Quayside Wing, Shire Hall, Westgate St, Gloucester GL1
2TP.
Or, if submitting by email: asiyah.patel@gloucestershire.gov.uk
Please also provide your ACET Development Officer with a copy of your report(s).


If in any doubt about these data collection requirements, please contact your
ACET Development Worker or Officer (see ACET Staffing List overleaf).

Project Evaluation

 All projects applied for through a local Consortium take part in an annual review
workshop (usually in the summer period) where the lessons learnt from each
project are pooled so we can identify the good practice in promoting social
inclusion through learning and in techniques for widening participation.

Peer Inspection

As part of ACET’s commitment to quality and to building organisations’ capacity,
your project may be involved in ‘peer inspection’. This would involve, for projects
where teaching and learning is going on, a colleague from another organisation or
ACET itself, visiting your project and observing the teaching. There is feed back
and the process is intended to be supportive and developmental. You can contact
ACET’s Quality Assurance Officer, Jacqueline Rinaldi, for information and advice.
