Alternative Creative Education (ACE)

Our Alternative Creative Education (ACE) programme incorporates accredited arts and creativity, generating a wealth of positive impacts.

The ACE programme enables young people to continue with their education. Within the programme we offer one to one support, a bespoke programme of accreditation options and opportunities on a termly, timetabled basis - equipping young people with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to dream big and reach their goals. The ACE programme is delivered by professionally qualified, specialist staff, including youth/arts workers and where appropriate tutors for Maths and English.
