About Elevate EBP
Elevate Education Business Partnership (EBP) works with businesses, schools, colleges and training providers to provide a range of employability services and opportunities.
We were established in 1998 and are a ‘not for profit’ company, limited by guarantee.
We aim to support schools and colleges in their delivery in the following areas:
- Statutory Careers Guidance & Ofsted
- Work Related Learning
- Enterprise Education
We facilitate this through numerous activities including Work Experience, Application Form/CV workshops, Practice interviews, Business /Enterprise activities, Higher Education Tasters, Careers Fairs, First Aid, Student Training, and Financial Literacy activities.
Our partners include Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), and the many local businesses who give their support and commitment in providing employability opportunities for our young people. We work closely with Sefton local authority as their approved provider for pre-16 work experience. We have also recently supported schools in the Knowsley area in linking education with business and supporting development of young people’s employability skills.
In addition we host Sefton Children’s University Trust and manage Warrington Children’s University. We are also working on an Education Endowment Fund programme, aiming to expand Children’s University in Lancashire and focusing on the ‘Social Action’ benefits of participation in CU.
