What is 'The ACE Experience'?

ACE has two streams of learning and development which we facilitate, pioneer, and drive for the AgriTech Sector

Stream 1 - In collaboration with our Academic Partner, Munster Technological University, Kerry, we facilitate the development of educational programmes specific to the individual needs of the learner. These programmes are aimed at addressing the skills needs of the AgriTech Sector.

Stream 2 - At ACE we identify, research, and share best practices in terms of learning and development for the AgriTech Sector. An integral part of the ACE Experience is our approach to learning management for our partner organizations. We support our industry partners' development and training needs during the entire employee life-cycle. This includes bespoke programme development. Our suite of offerings includes bespoke workshops to meet our industry partners' needs. These workshops are delivered on-site from our HQ in Tralee, County Kerry.
