Chris started attending ACE part-time when he was in Year 10. Over the course of a year, he achieved BTEC Level 1 in Engineering and a Level 1 in Business Admin. After leaving school following Year 11, he chose to return to ACE to do some post-16 training in Motor Vehicle Technology/Engineering as he felt that ACE provided him a safe environment and he was comfortable with the pace at which lessons were taught and the patience demonstrated by the staff. He has now completed his BTEC Level 2 Extended Certificate in Vehicle Technology, and has updated his Maths and English skills, and has gained some valuable work experience.
Chris said “I have learned a lot about cars, how they work and the components that they are made of. I’ve learned to use a variety of motor vehicle tools and equipment and enjoy working as part of a team”
Chris is now looking for employment or an apprenticeship within the Motor Vehicle industry.
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.
