Our Virtual ACE Programme

A little update on how things are going at Making the Leap:

With advice from Government to stay at home (until further notice), we’ve worked extremely hard to move what was a fantastic face-to-face service to one that does the business virtually. We are so pleased to be able to announce that this week saw the debut of our online programme, which will continue to provide eligible* young people with the tools needed to access employment and more.

This week’s Associates during their workshop.

Our Virtual ACE programme will now be run for 1-week (Monday – Friday) instead of our usual 3-week workshop. We are also running a variety of online masterclasses to ensure we provide the best support to our young people in their journey to employment.

Using tech, we have been able to stay connected to our young people, and offer the support, advice, guidance and training they need during these uncertain times.

If you would like to find out more on how we can help you make connections, build skills, and develop confidence; email us on and follow us on twitter @MTLZAtweet.
