					Expression of interest. Community of Practice: Connecting the A–Frame and Employability Skills The Adult Community and Further Education (ACFE) Board has initiated a new Connecting the A-Frame and Employability Skills project. The aim of the project is to develop a revised version of the A-Frame which will identify ways in which pre-accredited programs can better focus on the development of employability skills and contribute to the effectiveness and sustainability of ACE programs. It will provide additional processes and tools that will enable learners to develop, explicitly articulate and document their employability skills as a guide for future pathway planning and for presentation to potential employers and Registered Training Organisations. It will assist to articulate a learner’s employability skills and achievements, have them attested to by an ACE provider and documented as an electronic record in a single location. The documentation will be portable and transferable. The success of the A-Frame project has been due to the important input and involvement from a range of ACE providers from across Victoria. Participants will have input into the revision of the A-Frame and the opportunity to ensure that the development of employability skills becomes a ‘user friendly’ and integral part of the delivery of pre-accredited learning programs. CAE invites practitioners and providers, both ongoing and sessional, novice and experienced, who work in a range of settings from small to large ACE providers and in geographically diverse locations, to participate in this community of practice. Support from providers for practitioners to participate in the community of practice will be highly regarded in relation to the selection of participants in the project. There will be some support from the project to recompense participants or their provider for out of pocket expenses related to travel and attendance at these meetings. The community of practice will meet on three occasions between June 2008 and October 2008 and will require a commitment to trial the strategies and materials from the project in provider’s local setting. Time commitment would typically entail 5 to 10 hours per month plus three face-to-face meetings in Melbourne. Briefing session There will be a briefing session about the project and the community of practice to be held at CAE on Wednesday 21 May from 11.00 am to 12.00 pm. If you wish to attend this briefing please confirm your attendance with Cate Thompson CAE on 03 9652 0636 or email catet@cae.edu.au
