National Association for Able Children in Education

NACE works with schools, education leaders and practitioners to provide resources, webinars, coaching, training, CPD and networking opportunities to share best practice and guidance, with a focus on developing high-quality provision for more able learners and supporting whole-school improvement, grounded in research.

An independent charity founded 40 years ago, the National Association for Able Children in Education (NACE) works with schools to improve provision for more able learners by embedding an ethos and culture of high expectations for all, ensuring all young people have the opportunity to flourish.

NACE recommends that emphasis is placed on high expectations and high-quality, challenging teaching for all, with more able learners’ needs met largely through quality-first teaching with an ethos of teaching to the top. It is essential to remember that, while extracurricular opportunities are important in helping to identify and further develop abilities and talents, they are not the mainstay of more able and challenge provision. It is the careful crafting and implementation of the curriculum that will provide effectively for more able learners and, as a result, increase levels of challenge for all.

Who do you support:

NACE supports schools, education leaders and practitioners across all phases and sectors throughout England and Wales, and Internationally.
