ACE was founded in 1990 to provide community based education and training in the borough of Wigan and Leigh for people with learning disabilities. In 1991, ACE became a company limited by guarantee. We are managed by a Voluntary Management Group comprising of volunteers from a wide range of professional backgrounds. ACE is a voluntary organisation which gained charitable status in 2002 and we do not make a profit from any of our activities.
Both our Wigan and Leigh sites offer an extensive menu of activities and provide a person centred educational service for over 50 learners across the borough. Learners work on their own projects, at their own level and pace without the pressure of meeting deadlines.
As an education provider ACE is committed to delivering quality educatonal programmes and managing the performance of its service and employees. ACE continues to encourage staff and volunteers in their personal development and we are a supporter of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter.
We also work in partnership with local employers, schools, colleges, universities, charities, emergency services and other providers within the voluntary and community sector.
ACE continues to establish positive relationships with organisations throughout the borough and nationally, including the Boroughwide Community Network, British Institute for Learning Disabilities (BILD), National Institute for Adult Continuing Education (NIACE), Skills for Care, ASDAN, ICO Register of data controllers, training agencies, the Wigan healthy living team, and Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisations (GMCVO).
This ensures that information is disseminated and good working practices are shared. ACE also works closely with family members and support agencies to identify individual needs for the benefit of the learner.
