Achieving for Children – Education Business Partnership
The EBP has more than 15 years of experience in providing employability, training and work experience opportunities to local young people. Our work experience programme sees over 1000 local students being offered placements, the programme is tailored to meet the needs of each school and includes bespoke placements for young people with SEND. Sustainable links with local employers have been developed. Involvement in NEET reduction programmes including Youth Contract, Your Future, Your Choice and Work Pairing have enabled us to develop provision to the hardest to reach young people across both boroughs. Ongoing mentoring, supported work experience, employability support and guidance from employers have reduced NEET Figures. The team has close links with the borough’s youth services and is part of the 14-19 team, allowing us to work with the most vulnerable young people in the borough and provide a bespoke support package to them. We are an in impartial broker who works in partnership with all of the local training providers and colleges to offer a broad offer to our young people.
We are a department of a community interest company, owned by Kingston and Richmond Councils.
