Moving Forward in 2019

Message from the AEBP Chair.

Christmas is almost upon us, 2019 is fast approaching and as EBP’s the time to step up our own profiles as a collective group of expert practitioners is here.  The AEBP national profile, has never been as important and needs to promote the good work and quality interventions its members continue to supply.

According to guidance for schools “Careers Leaders are responsible and accountable for the delivery of their school’s programme of career advice and guidance. It is a senior role that requires the person doing it to have a clear overview of the school’s careers provision and to make sure that the school meets the Gatsby Benchmarks by the end of 2020.”

In 2020, will you be sitting wishing that you had acted now? 2019 will be one of the most important years in the history of our Education Business Partnership network. Now more than ever EBPs need to work collectively and collaboratively as a team.

Behind the scenes of the AEBP we have been working tirelessly to help promote EBP’s across the country not only in relation to the Gatsby benchmarks, but the challenges of unfunded brokerage.  Lots has happened throughout 2018 and we have rebranded and started a working partnership with the Edge Foundation. We need to reinstate our annual subscription to continue our work and step up the recognition of the quality work that takes place and the service available from members.

Ensure your organisation is a part of the network of EBPs across the country who are renewing their membership for 2019 and secure your place in the emerging new landscape in the Careers, Enterprise and STEM service supporting the education sector.  The membership form and associated documents can be found here and the link below, but please get them back to us before the end of January to be able to take advantage of the limited subsidised membership subscription kindly provided by the Edge Foundation.

Wishing you all a peaceful Christmas period and a prosperous New Year

Kind regards

Beryl Henshaw
Chair
The Association of Education and Business Professionals
