About Us

ACE360 is an Apprenticeship Management Solution launched by the Federation for Industry Sector Skills and Standards (FISSS), which is the designated Certifying Authority for Framework Apprenticeships in England.

FISSS is a registered Charity and a not for profit Private Limited Company representing the sector skills councils in the UK. Our aim is to advance the education of employed and unemployed individuals by promoting, organising, and delivering the development of skills across England.

FISSS has 10 years of experience delivering high-quality IT solutions for the education sector through the predecessor ACE system. With over 2,000 registered organisations, ACE has certificated over 2 million Apprenticeships since launch, and by doing so has reduced the cost and bureaucracy associated with Apprenticeship certification.

Our Goal

The ACE360 system has been developed to meet the changing needs of the education and training sector involved in the delivery and assessment of Apprenticeship Standards. With increased complexity and number of partner organisations, We recognise that Apprenticeship Standards could burden organisations with additional administration associated with the processing and sending/receiving of records. ACE360 resolves this issue and provides an end-to-end online solution leaving your organisation and your team with the time to deliver your role in the process without any hindrance.

With a reputation in the industry for maintaining quality and delivering efficiency, ACE360 is the only non-commercial and impartial Apprenticeship Management System on the market, built specifically for the interests of our users.

The Federation for Industry Sector Skills & Standards (FISSS) is a registered Charity (Charity number SC026655) and a company limited by guarantee registered in Scotland (Company number SC175918). The registered office is 64A Cumberland Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6RE, Scotland.
