We are Education Business Partnership (EBP) and we have been inspiring our future workforce since 1993.

Each year we help a wide range of businesses to meet their objectives through the programmes we develop and deliver with them. We harness the value from around 4500 volunteer hours and around 1800 work experience placements for the benefit of young people across the region.

We’re proud of the work that our dedicated team deliver, in partnership with over 900 businesses of all sizes, across all sectors, to positively impact around 20,000 young people each year.

Ultimately our mission is to ‘inspire our future workforce’ and everything we do is focused on making a real difference for young people.

Business Feedback

It’s good to be professional when approaching schools, you will need help! We were lucky as a lot of this was already in place through EBP. The introductions, professionalism and the ability to work together was invaluable. EBP have a wealth of experience and could steer us and guide us to create a really successful programme.”
