About us Our mission Our mission We are EBP South (Incorporating Basingstoke Consortium) With 20 years’ experience EBP South is the leader in the Central South connecting businesses and schools through established high-quality programmes. Our mission is to inspire and prepare young people for the world of work. Working alongside forward-thinking businesses our proactive approach provides social mobility for young people, opportunities to challenge job role stereotypes and support for industries with emerging skills gaps, delivering a diverse, skilled workforce. We achieve this by connecting education and business. Starting in primary school, we offer a pipeline of opportunities to engage with tomorrow’s employees, and in such challenging times our partnership work as a single point of contact for businesses and schools has never been more important. We do it because we believe in broadening horizons for young people to reach their future potential. As a result of EBP South’s leadership, over the next five years more than 75,000 young people will connect to businesses, benefitting from ambitious, life-changing interactions that over an extended period, positively impact students’ attainment and attendance.
