Training and Consultancy

ACE is one of the country's leading organisations offering training and consultancy on a wide range of education issues

Although we are not currently providing any face to face training we can still deliver our same high quality training to you online using zoom.  Whatever your current training needs please get in touch to discuss them with us.  

We have extensive experience in the education field and our frequent contact with parents and carers as well as education professionals means that our training is evidence based. Our training is regularly updated to reflect the latest changes in education law and guidance and our trainers are experienced, knowledgeable and committed professionals.

We offer two core types of training:

1. Online Training Seminars 

ACE runs a regular seminar programme of approximately three seminars per term. Our Online Seminars include a full day of training split into a morning and afternoon session with a break for lunch.  Delegates receive a comprehensive training manual as part of their booking.

We offer training on the following topics:

- School Admissions & Admission Appeals
