Under this arrangement, a student will spend part of their school week at ACE, with the support of their school and parent/guardian/carer.

We will consider every request on an individual basis but this course is only suitable for students who have a genuine interest in construction and who will be comfortable in a learning environment with older students present.

Students will typically spend 1-3 days per week at ACE and the days for this course are Wednesday to Friday.

There is also a registration fee of £100 per student, for students undertaking Entry Level 3 (EL3) courses.  This is payable by the school and is not included in the fees quoted above.
