I write to introduce you to our organisation Alternative Curriculum Education (ACE) in Millfield, Peterborough. We currently work to support secondary schools, colleges, private care organisations and pupil referral units and offer both an academic and vocational programme of activities for young people not accessing education for whatever reason. We can offer students upto a three day programme or a combination of days (upto a maximum of 18 hours per week) to suit your requirements we can also cater for small groups (6 students) and can offer a bespoke programme of activities on either a short term or long term basis. Students can be placed 'on and off' the programme as required and can start the programme as soon as we receive a completed referral and consent/medical form.
The majority of our courses are linked to BTEC and Edexcel Skilled for Life qualifications from entry level to level 2 including;- Personal and Social Development, Workskills, Careers and Employability, Construction (bricklaying, painting and decorating, woodwork and diy skills), Sport & Active Leisure, Public Services, Hospitality & Catering, Health & Social care, Motorcycle and bicycle maintenance, Safe Road User Skills and we offer functional maths and English from entry level to level 2. Individual unit certification is given for students not achieving the full awards.
We liaise closely with the referral agency and the parents/guardian regarding attendance, behaviour and achievement throughout the students placement at ACE and provide daily attendance registers to each referral agency. Student trackers and reports are sent termly and are also available on request by other professionals involved with a young person placed with us.
Please do not hesitate to contact me on 01733 687424 should you require any further information or to arrange a visit to our centre.
I hope our provision is of interest to you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
