Eastbourne Education Business Partnership Ltd delivers work-related activities that enhance teaching and student learning outcomes and contribute to economic growth and prosperity in Eastbourne and Hailsham.
Eastbourne EBP is totally independent and proudly gained charitable status in November 2012. We work closely with Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce and Eastbourne Borough Council to help broker partnership support and contribute to workforce planning. We represent ‘Learning & Skills’ on the Eastbourne Strategic Partnership. Stephen Lloyd MP is our patron.
Dr Steven Goss-Turner, Chair of Eastbourne EBP, writes, “The partnership between education and the business community is often characterised by good intentions on both sides but a lack of tangible outcomes. Eastbourne EBP is a striking example of an initiative which provides the medium for achieving mutually beneficial outcomes. This is recognised by its fifth ‘High Impact’ award for Eastbourne Youth Radio in 2013 and an Eastbourne Achievers Award for ‘Services to Education’ but more significantly by the enthusiasm and the learning generated by the collaboration of students, teachers and business leaders
