Advisory Centre for Education (ACE)
About ACE Education Advice & Training
ACE Education Advice & Training provides independent advice and information for parents on education issues in England. High quality training and consultancy services covering education law and guidance are provided to a wide range of education professionals.
Established following the closure of The Advisory Centre for Education, ACE Education continues much of the vital work of its predecessor and shares the same ethos and vision of a fair education system for all.
ACE Education strongly believes that education improves life chances for children and young people. It strives to improve access to and understanding of, an increasingly complex education system. It aims to help all families, particularly those who find themselves disadvantaged or marginalised.
ACE Advice and Information Service
Information is based on current education law and guidance and covers state funded education for children aged 5-16 years in England only. The advice and information aims to give parents up-to-date knowledge of law and guidance as well as practical and tactical advice on how to work with their child's school to resolve any concerns. The advice covers a wide range of educational issues.
