Somerset Education Business Partnership

Helping you take the right step

The Somerset EBP is a free service, aiming to improve connections between employers and education providers throughout the county.

Business-education collaboration enhances careers education, inspires learners, showcases career opportunities and fosters a future talent pipeline.

Supporting employers to develop and secure the skilled workforce they need to grow and advance, we help education providers deliver effective career programmes by showcasing locally available opportunities on our directory.

We help learners gain a better understanding of post-16 options and the work place, alongside publishing local vacancies, including apprenticeships, here.

Events & Engagements

Research has shown that young people who have contact with employers whilst at school are significantly less likely to become NEET - not in education, employment or training - and can expect to earn more money once they are in full-time employment.

If you are an employer who is interested in supporting students with careers activities, check our events calendar for opportunities to engage with schools in your area. If you would like to recruit volunteers from business to take part in careers activities at your school, contact us with details of your event.

We also promote details of careers events that young people can attend outside of school here and on our Instagram page.
