Learn Local ACFE

Learn Local

SBMS, in conjunction with the ACFE Board, has provided support to the Learn Local sector through a broad range of support programs:


Governance Support: The ACFE Board developed the Learn Local Committee of Management Capability Framework to support committees of management to effectively meet their governance obligations.  A number of associated resources, including a workbook and a self-assessment tool were designed to provide tailored advice to help committee of management members be successful in their oversight of the business of a Learn Local organisation.

ACFE has engaged the Small Business Mentor Service to provide training and mentoring to Learn Local Committees of Management, using the framework, workbook and self-assessment tools as resources.

 The support offered through SBMS has used a variety of delivery methodologies:

  • One to one mentoring: to the chairman, board or CEO
  • Group mentoring support to the board
  • Mentoring support to the CEO and senior management
  • Workshop/training sessions


Business Support: Learn Local Businesses have had access to a broad range of SBMS Mentors to assist with business improvement and enhancement support. Mentoring focused on Management, Marketing, Finance and Planning skills.

  • One to One Mentoring: To Chairman, Board or CEO
  • Mentoring Support to the CEO and Senior Management
  • Workshop/Training sessions
  • Financial distress support
