New Mandatory Field on ACE

31st July 2013


A new mandatory field will be introduced to ACE on Monday 5th August. You will now be required to state whether an apprentice has been publically funded or not. The new field will appear on the basic information tab of an apprentice as shown below.


You will not be able to submit a candidate for certification without making a selection in this field.

This change also means that a new bulk upload template will be required to load candidates. This will be available to download from the bulk upload page on ACE from the 5th of August.


To set an apprentice as publically funded, please enter a ‘1’ in the last column of your spreadsheet. For privately funded, please enter a ‘0’ in the final column.
