NACE - Who We Are

Founded in 1983, NACE is recognised both nationally and internationally as a leading charity in the field of education for able learners. We provide guidance, support and training, enabling teachers to attain the best from able learners in the everyday classroom, whilst enabling all learners to flourish and achieve. We run a dynamic regional and national events and conference programme. Alongside this we offer bespoke CPD, and develop resources specifically for members. The NACE Challenge Award is a recognised tool for more able school self-review and improvement for all. NACE members benefit from access to resources, updates on latest developments, discounts on events and much more.
