Training

Developing staff to reach their potential

The purpose of the A.C.E. Training is to provide each school staff member with the tools required to fulfil their tasks effectively. Staff are trained on how to use and apply the "Personalised System of Instruction" (P.S.I.) within the Learning Centre, encourage the students to find their God given talents as well as how to manage a Learning Centre. Trainings will be based on a blended system covering physical PACE work as well as working through online lessons.

FAQs

How do I know when my child is ready to start grade 1?
The A.C.E. Preschool programme (grade R) is an excellent programme that will prepare your child for the ABCs when he/she starts grade 1. It is recommended that the preschool programme be introduced in the year that they turn six. The reason for this is that the programme is intensive and a child must be emotionally and physically mature enough to keep up.
I'm not a qualified teacher. Can I still teach my child at home?
Absolutely! The programme has been designed in such a way that the PACEs (workbooks) serve as the "teacher"; you will merely be facilitating the learning process.

Homeschool and supervisor training courses are available and recommended for parents who would like to learn more about the programme and procedures.
Our family travels a lot. Will the programme work for us?
Absolutely! One of the benefits of homeschooling through A.C.E. is that the programme is individualised and unique, and students work at their own speed. You can create a timetable that works around your family's schedule.
How much time does homeschooling take?
This may vary from one family to another, but in general at primary school level, 3 – 4 hours per day is sufficient and at high school level about 4 – 5 hours should be sufficient for formal academic activities. This leaves a lot of time for other activities, many of which are also learning activities that develop a child's experience or character – such as hobbies, reading, outings and extra-curricular activities.
Can I start homeschooling halfway through the school year?
With A.C.E., you have the liberty to start at any time of the year. Students work at their own speed and can start at any time. Once they have completed a grade level they simply move onto the next one, regardless of the time of year.
What if my child has an academic question that I can't answer?
The A.C.E. curriculum has been designed to be used by parents and students who are not familiar with the subject matter. The PACEs (workbooks) contain comprehensive explanations and examples, and are therefore self-explanatory. However, if there are concepts that require additional attention you are welcome to find a qualified or experienced tutor to teach a specific subject. A.C.E. also has subject experts whom you may contact for specific academic queries. In the higher grades, additional resources are available in the form of DVDs for the more challenging subjects.

Students also have access to the online eLearn portal, LearnCloud. There are an increasing collection of high-quality eLearning resources available which allow students to view short lessons and ask questions about the work they are doing in their PACEs. To access LearnCloud, go to https://learncloud.aeegroup.co.za.
How do I know that my child is on track?
You will be able to follow a sequence which clearly shows what work your child should ideally be doing for his/her grade level. You will also be required to send your child's work to your academy on a quarterly basis, so they can monitor your child/ren's progress and ensure he/she is on track. We also provide testing that will measure your child/ren's abilities, identify areas of potential, as well as areas that may need extra attention.
