Education Business Partnership (EBP) has been designing and delivering engaging ways for employers and young people to come together for over 25 years.
We work in partnership with around 1,500 businesses whose involvement with our activities often supports their own Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) goals. We help businesses to:
- attract applicants (into apprenticeships, graduate programmes or direct entry roles)
- address skills shortages
- inspire students to enter a career in their sector
- improve the employability skills of young people
- host work experience students
- gain feedback/insight from young people
In addition, involvement with EBP enables employers to improve employee engagement by offering volunteering opportunities as well as enhancing and developing employees’ skills through mentoring and coaching.
We work with businesses of all sizes from all sectors together with students from primary schools, secondary schools and colleges across the Thames Valley and Wiltshire.
Each year we work with over 12,000 young people to deliver a wide range of initiatives designed to build confidence, raise aspirations and help them to successfully prepare to enter the world of work. These initiatives include: work experience, careers and enterprise activities, skills development workshops/programmes, careers/job fairs and insight days.
Fundamentally, we bring the education and business worlds together and facilitate delivery of impactful programmes for the mutual benefit of all involved.
