Eastbourne EBP delivers work-related activities that enhance teaching and student learning outcomes and contribute to economic growth and prosperity.
Giles Entwisle, Chair of Eastbourne EBP, writes, "Eastbourne EBP has continued to build on 30 years of achievements in its aim of brokering meaningful partnership between education and business. In particular, the EBP provides a wide range of events and activities as exemplified by the 2020 schedule below (some postponements due to ongoing coronavirus lockdown), aimed at enriching the curriculum and student learning. 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 (BFS), that attract the participation of over 3,000 students.”
