A survey conducted between 1995 and 1996 revealed that, although convinced about Christian home education, many homeschooling parents felt isolated and even discouraged by the lack of local support from like-minded Christians, and would appreciate regular contact, fellowship, support, assistance and encouragement from experienced Christian educators, who also home educate their children. To this end, Christian Education Europe Ltd. decided to establish TEACH, a distance learning support organisation which now has over 500 families and more than 1,000 children.

The European Academy for Christian Homeschooling provides a comprehensive range of quality services designed to help parents establish and run a homeschooling programme of the highest quality. By working with TEACH your family will receive the support and assistance necessary to fulfill your responsibilities to “bring them (your children) up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4). Under no circumstances will the academy presume to take over this responsibility.

The TEACH Team

The TEACH Team is made up of a group of experience Christian home educators & graduates of the ACE curriculum who are passionate about give their fellow home educators the help & support they need.

Michelle Davies

TEACH Administrator

Michelle, or Minnie as most people call her, is also a graduate of the ACE curriculum. Her parents started an ACE school when she was nine, but then moved to Leeds to pastor a church there, and so Michelle has experienced being a homeschool student as well. She graduated with a Level 3 NCSC certificate, and then went to university. Michelle loves tea, and really, really wants an office pet, but at present has to settle for looking after the TEACH office plant.

    Becky Penberthy-Smith

    TEACH National Coordinator

    Becky & her husband John home educated their two daughters, Hannah & Abigail, through the ACE curriculum for over 15 years. As her girls have now finished their home education, she wants to help encourage other parents on their journey of home education, and so in 2015 she became the National Coordinator for TEACH. She especially has a heart to support new TEACH families as they are starting out on their ACE journey.

      Nathan Field

      TEACH Manager

      Nathan studied with ACE all the way from ABCs Learning to Read to NCSC Advanced Level. After working in IT for six years, and gaining a BSc in Computing, Nathan joined TEACH in 2015 with the aim of helping home educators enjoy the same fantastic experience that he had. He likes coffee and eating copious amounts of food. Nathan’s wife Becky is also a graduate of ACE, and they are looking forward to starting their daughter, Phoebe, on the ACE curriculum!
