All the latest news from ACE Training

We were delighted last week to host both Layla Moran MP for Abingdon and Oxford West, and Sarah Marlow, Skills Policy Executive at Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership, to mark the closing of National Apprenticeship Week and National Careers Week. It was a great opportunity to let them know about everything that’s been happening at ACE lately including our recent Ofsted inspection, French exchange visit, schools work and upcoming Open Evening for Year 11s.

We were delighted that Layla was able to present our Learner of the Month certificates to Jed and George, and our tutor Ian was able to put both out visitors through their paces in his immaculate brick workshop. We appreciate the continued support both of Layla and OxLEP and look forward to welcoming them back to ACE in the future. Pics from the visit are here.

It is also the number of people who attended our Open Morning on Saturday past.
