Eastbourne Education Business Partnership
  • Eastbourne
Eastbourne EBP delivers work-related activities that enhance teaching and student learning outcomes and contribute to economic growth and prosperity.

We are an independent registered charity that works closely with Eastbourne Borough Council and Chamber of Commerce to help broker partnership support and contribute to workforce planning. We are active members of the Eastbourne Strategic Partnership, Youth Partnership and Coastal Community Team.

Dr Steven Goss-Turner, Chair of Eastbourne EBP, writes, "Eastbourne EBP has continued to build on more than 30 years of achievements in fulfilling its strategy of brokering meaningful partnership between education and the business community. In particular, the EBP provides a wide range of events and activities as exemplified by the 2019/20 schedule below, aimed at enriching the curriculum and student learning. All these events are important to the EBP, and the momentum behind the organisation continues to maintain the diversity of the programme, whilst dedicating much energy to the most far-reaching projects, Eastbourne Youth Radio and The BIG Futures Show, projects which attract the participation of over 3,000 students each year.”
