Rubi’s Success Story
“Learning at ACE has changed my life. Before coming
here I used to find it hard to speak English which made
me dependent on others. I’ve now progressed from
Functional Skills Entry Level 1 to Level 1 English and
also achieved Level 2 Maths, Level 2 IT and Childcare
The skills I’ve learned have made such a difference
to my life; they’ve made it easier. I am now more
independent; I’ve passed my driving test and my Life
in the UK test and I feel more confident in speaking to
my doctor and supporting my son.
Maths, English and IT courses leading to qualifications are free. How much you pay
for other courses will depend on your personal circumstances so if you’re in receipt
of a benefit or don’t have much money coming in, you may not have to pay towards

Discretionary Learner Support Fund

expensive because you are on a low income, you can apply to the Discretionary

It was because of ACE that I went on to do GCSE
maths and a Teaching Assistant course at College. I
now have a full time job as a Teaching Assistant.”
