I have been a trainee at ACE since September 2013. I started off coming just 1 day a week but I found myself achieving more here than I did at school. I now attend ACE 3 days a week and study Travel and Tourism, Art and Design and Childcare. At ACE you are treated more like adults and are respected for being yourself. I feel the teachers are more understanding and want you to do well and gain qualifications and therefore will do all they can to help.
The activities that are carried out in class are fun and the learning is done in a way where you do not really know you are learning. There are more activities and games to learning rather than just writing.
I feel I have settled down in my life since I have attended ACE and learnt how to manage my troubles better. The ACE team have helped me with strategies for learning, but they have also helped me with everyday life.
I wish I could have gone to ACE along time ago as I am now coming up to leaving school. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

At the moment, our Training Centre is still open, and we intend to remain so for as long as safely possible. We are taking additional precautions to safeguard the health and well-being of our students, teaching staff and other employees:
We have increased the frequency with which we clean all our offices and are ensuring the cleaning standards are consistent with government advice. Students and staff are being encouraged to frequently hand wash and keep contact to a minimum.
We have restricted movement outside the training centre and have cancelled any non-essential meetings and visits.
We will try to keep learning disruption to our students to a minimum, even in the event of a partial closure of the Training Centre. Where possible, students will be provided with learning resources to continue their learning at home, with telephone or internet support provided, as appropriate. You will be advised of this as the situation develops and in line with updated Government policy and advice.
Above all, student and staff safety remain our top priority at all times. If in doubt of any of the above information, please call us.
