Welcome to ACE Education Advice & Training
ACE Education continues the work of The Advisory Centre for Education
For parents and carers ACE provides independent advice and information on state education in England.
For professionals ACE offers a range of high quality training and consultancy services covering education law and guidance.
ACE Volunteer Advisers
ACE is looking to recruit more volunteers to work on its busy telephone advice service giving support to parents and carers on a wide range of education issues. More details can be found on the Vacancies and Volunteering page.
Revised Statutory Exclusions Guidance came into force from Sept 2017. Update yourself on the changes and requirements by booking a place on our Exclusions Seminar or arranging an in-house Tailored Training Session. If you are involved in the exclusion process at school or local authority level or if you work with children and their families who are being excluded our training is right for you.
ACE Training Seminars
Our next scheduled seminars would normally take place during June 2020 but until we have more information on how the lockdown will be lifted we are not advertising any future seminar dates. We are still delivering training using video link or written resources. See our Tailored Training pages for details.
Parents and carers can speak to one of our trained advisers on the ACE telephone adviceline
Primary & Secondary school offers 2020
If you did not get the school place that you wanted for your child we know that this can be an upsetting and worrying time for everyone involved. You can find information in our Advice section explaining what you can do now. If you want to learn more about appealing for a school place you can download a copy of our advice booklet called Appealing for a School.
