ACE have just received funding from the Love Norfolk fund, via Norfolk Community Foundation, for the conversion of a currently unused space on the mezzanine floor of our vocational training space into two classrooms and the installation of eight computer workstations. We have been looking into improving our facilities for a while, so we are very grateful to the Love Norfolk fund for making our dreams a reality. We anticipate that some of our adult learners will be getting work experience and/or employment opportunities during the course of the conversion. Having been a long time in the making, we are excited to be able to increase the range of courses and qualifications on offer across all vocational areas and to continue improving the lives of the young people and vulnerable adults that learn with us; allowing more people to achieve their full potential. We will bring you updated pictures of the works as they progress. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for updates.
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.
