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 three core types of training:

1. Online Training Seminars 

ACE runs a regular seminar programme of approximately four 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 cover a range of topics such as:

- School Admissions & Admission Appeals

- School Exclusions & Exclusion Reviews

- Special Educational Needs and Disability

- The role of the SEN expert at IRP

For more details and to see dates and how to book a place please see our Online Training Seminars page.

2. Online Tailored Training

ACE can create bespoke training courses tailored to suit your specific needs. We can include local information and local issues to make the training more relevant to you. We deliver the training online at a time and date convenient to you.

3. Online Education 'Step-by-Step' Training for advisors and advocates

This training package consists of our comprehensive 'Education Step-by-Step' advisors manual and a full day's training on how to use it, together with free updates for the first year. The manual provides advisors with legally accurate information on the main areas of education law and guidance in which problems can arise. Written in a straightforward accessible style, the manual remains an invaluable up-to-date resource for those giving advice to parents and young people or advocating on their behalf.
