ACE - The Character Education Subject Association

ACE is a not for profit membership organisation.  It is a community for schools, organisations and individuals interested in character education to share expertise and practice.  The organisation supports schools, teachers and other educationalists to develop and promote character education responses that enable young people and societies to flourish.  

It does this by:

  • Supporting teachers and other educators to develop a vision and strategy for the enhancement of character education in their school / organisation
  • Demonstrating the value of character education to teachers, other educational professionals, policy makers, parents, employers and other interested parties
  • Raising the profile of character education in the U.K. and demonstrating its effectiveness at supporting other whole school aims including attainment, behaviour and careers.
