At The Ace Community Programme Charity you will work towards your L3 Community Sport and Health Officer Qualification over the course of 12-18 Months.

The ACE Programme was launched by Surrey County Cricket Club in January 2020 in response to the decline of the black British professional players by 75%, and less than 1% of the recreational game. The ACE Programme was designed to engage young people of African and Caribbean Heritage and a talent search was launched.

In Black History Month, October 2020, following significant investment of £540,000 from Sport England, The ACE Programme Charity launched as an independent charity.
