About ACE - Adult Community Education (Wigan) Limited
ACE has been part of the Wigan community since 1990 providing a vital service for adults with learning disabilities. A non-profit, voluntary organisation who achieved charitable status in 2002.
Our mission is to bridge the gap in education and training opportunities ensuring students have the best opportunities and experiences, by providing them with the tools and resources they need to learn, develop and maintain a wide variety of skills.
By delivering community-based training and education our students are supported to achieve nationally recognised awards and qualifications. Students work at their own pace and ability, without the pressure to complete activities by specific dates or timescales. Each student has a learning plan which details their learning outcomes and includes statements of what the student is expected to know, understand, and do.
None this would be possible without our dedicated staff team and support from our community. With assistance from our local councillors and other donations we have been able to develop our technology, resulting in each student having their own personal tablet device to use on and off site, ensuring no one is digitally excluded.
We are continually looking to develop our service and to develop new experiences and purchase new resources that will help our students to develop and progress and more importantly maintain the skills that will help them in all aspects of life.
