At Leeds Education Business Partnership (EBP) we work with local businesses to support schools, colleges and individual young people to integrate employability skills into the curriculum.
Research shows that the more times a young person engages with people from the world of work, the lower the chances they have of becoming unemployed later in life.
If you work with us your business can make a real difference to the future of Leeds and help young people develop their work related skills.
Who do we work with?
- Local high schools – to deliver mentoring and employability programmes for students aged 14 to 18
- Businesses – recruiting, training and supporting them to engage with schools and maximise their return on social investment
- Vulnerable learners including Looked After Children and young people who are not engaged with education, employment or training
