The report covers all activity, including VET, delivered by ACE providers in receipt of State/ Territory or Commonwealth recurrent or specific purpose allocations for VET. Issues discussed in the report include: the scope of adult and community education in Australia; collection and reporting issues; and feasibility and costs of expanding current collection requirements.

Chapter 4 considers the feasibility and costs of expanding the current collection requirements. Appendixes include technical notes and a tabular national overview of ace. Volume 2 is an analysis of existing information in national education and training data collection. Chapter 1 delineates the scope of data collection: activity as reported by representative bodies for ace providers and organizations; education and training delivered by community centers; and personal enrichment and training activity. Chapter 2 analyzes data by entire ace sector and six segments of the nationally reported ace sector (personal enrichment and vet programs categorized by delivery service and reporting method).
