ACE is one of the industry leaders in designing and conducting demand-driven trainings. Our clients include SMEs, UN agencies, NGOs, telecoms companies, and educational institutions. As ACE’s services are interrelated, our trainings often lead directly to employment. For UN Women, ACE implemented an 8-month training and internship program for 50 female graduates. ACE developed a demand-driven and interactive training curriculum for 120 hours focusing on personal development, business management and employability skills. The training modules also covered English skills for employability. Subsequently, the graduates were given the opportunity to intern for four months with the World Food Programme (WFP), American University in Afghanistan, Roshan Telecom, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Women Affairs, Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, and other reputable organizations as interns. ACE is proud to highlight that more than 50% of the interns ended up with permanent jobs.
