This is a great opportunity to find out about:

• Our vocational courses and apprenticeship programmes
• Our approach to work experience and onward progression for students
• How we support students with English and Maths
• Our 2019 Summer Programme for Year 11 leavers
• Financial support for students

The evening will consist of a tour of the building and the opportunity to watch and talk to tutors and students who will be demonstrating typical activities that are undertaken at ACE by students, both in the classroom and workshop.

We are now accepting bookings for places to attend. More info here.

We’re pleased to be exhibiting once again at the annual Oxfordshire Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance Conference at Unipart in Oxford this Thursday, 7th February. With a range of great speakers throughout the day, it’s a brilliant opportunity for careers and support professionals to network, get professional updates and also find out about new initiatives in the field.

Our Apprentice Training Co-ordinator Sorcha will be taking part in a Careers Education event taking place today at Henry Box school in Witney for Year 7-13s. The school are changing the way they approach career development, which includes mixing all year groups together.

So all pupils from Years 7-13 will be involved in career themed activities relevant to the career decisions they are making (GCSE choices, Post 16 choices, etc) but also be stretching and inspiring.

Sorcha will take place in a Human Library session with a number of other professionals from a variety of sectors, which gives pupils the chance to listen to ask people in industry questions about their experiences and backgrounds.

This is also a great way for us to learn more about what students think about our industry and the world of work in general.

Our monthly Saturday Open mornings begin again next month and we’re pleased to let you know all the dates from the remainder of the year. Of course, we are always happy to organise appointments for visitors at other times to suit but our monthly open mornings have proven really useful for prospective students and employers to come and have a look around and talk to our team.

If you’d like to make an appointment to come and see us at another date and time, just get in touch and we’d be happy to arrange this for you.

Our last Saturday Open Morning of 2018 is tomorrow (Saturday) from 1000-1200.

Just because the cold weather is coming (afraid so), doesn’t mean we haven’t got great training courses for you to sing up to, or that employers aren’t looking to take on apprentices (we have at least SIX opportunities today!).  So if you’re interested in construction training for yourself, someone you know or for your business, then make an appointment to see us this Saturday morning.

We have flexible start dates so don’t worry about having ‘missed the boat’!  Talk to us about funding, training costs and student support also.

Email us info@acetraining.co.uk if you’d like to see us tomorrow!

 

 

We can’t quite believe it’s half-term already!

Quick reminder of our arrangements:

  1. Apprentices will attend college as normal, on either Monday 22nd or Tuesday 23rd.
  2. Study Programme and all other students attending Wednesday/Thursday/Friday are OFF next week, returning to college from Wednesday 31st October

Our training centre will be open and staffed throughout, so we’d be happy to see any employers or individuals interested in our courses.  Please get in touch on 01865370040 or info@acetraining.co.uk to arrange an appointment!

We will be at the West Oxfordshire Learning Partnership (WOLP) Apprenticeship Fair this evening (Thursday 18th October 2018) from 5-8pm at Witney Lakes Resort.

Students in years 10-13 at the 7 west Oxfordshire schools have been invited and the event is open to the public too, so we know that it will be a busy and enjoyable event and that the students and parents will really appreciate the opportunity to talk to us and the other exhibitors.

West Oxfordshire Learning Partnership of schools:

  • Bartholomew School
  • Burford School
  • Carterton Community College
  • Chipping Norton School

Our second-to-last Saturday Open Morning of 2018 is this Saturday from 1000-1200.

As you know, we’re not the sort of college to turn people away just because September has passed, so if you’re interested in construction training for yourself, someone you know or for your business, then make an appointment to see us this Saturday morning.

We have flexible start dates so don’t worry about having ‘missed the boat’!  Talk to us about funding, training costs and student support also.

 

We’re looking forward to the Careers Education, Information, Advice & Guidance (CEIAG) Day at Matthew Arnold School in Oxford this Wednesday.

Sorcha will be there talking to Year 11s about the award-winning apprenticeship training at ACE and our pre-apprenticeship Study Programmes which have proven success in helping students progress into employment, further training and apprenticeships.

Our students are on a well-earned break the next two weeks so we are taking the time to prepare for September, but also opening our doors to anyone interested in what we do here at ACE.

We have a monthly Saturday Open Morning most months, next week it’s an Open Doors Week. Whether you’re an employer interested in taking on an apprentice, a student thinking about life after GCSEs, or an agency/organisation looking to find out more about what we do….come and see us!

All we ask is you ring ahead so we know you’re coming! Call 01865 370040.
