ACE Multi Academy Trust works across Devon, Cornwall and Plymouth with children for whom main stream education is not right. Young people with behavioural challenges; children with mental health concerns; students who find the traditional setting of a school intimidating.
We change these young people’s lives. Our extraordinary staff have the ability to connect with these children and apply the principles of trauma informed care to enable them to reach their potential. It is not an exaggeration to say that we offer a life changing service.
But we need your help. Our staff need trustees to help guide and protect the vision and mission of the organisation and local representatives to be the eyes and ears of the Trust in the community.
Chief Executive Gavin Gracie said “In the current situation in our communities with Covid-19 we have seen fantastic community support and people coming together to help. The ACE Trust needs your help and support as well. We need local people, with a passion for education and a belief in young people, to join us as Trustees and local representatives.
We can’t offer any salary, dividends or even a pension. What we offer instead is a genuine opportunity to give something back to your community. You will be part of a team that turns lives round; making a real difference for our young people, their families and their communities.”
Trustees and local representatives work flexibly, but need to prepare for and attend at least 2 two hour meetings every term (often held virtually) and when possible spend some time visiting the schools. In return the Trust can offer support, training, induction, team work and a life enhancing experience that will bring greater satisfaction that just about anything you have done before.
