The ACE English language school has been recognised for its contribution to English

education in Cambodia.

The school was presented with the IDP Education Australia award for efforts to improve

the professional development of English language teachers in Phnom Penh. In 2003

the school's professional development program provided training allowing almost 100

teachers to upgrade their skills. Teachers trained by ACE teach 3000 students within

the school and reach countless others in the wider community. "The ACE professional

development program is a response to a recognised need for capacity building in the

English language teaching sector," said Louise FitzGerald, Director of ACE.
