AELP

The Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP) is the leading trade association for vocational learning and employment providers in Britain. The majority of its 800+ members are independent private, not-for-profit and voluntary sector training and employment services organisations. Membership is open to any provider committed to quality provision and it includes 40 FE colleges involved in work based learning. AELP members train over 75% of England’s 900,000 apprentices currently on programme.
AELP’s purpose as a representative body is to secure the creation of a high quality coherent employment and skills system which is driven by employer and learner demand. We argue that focused investment in training will be of major benefit to the UK economy in terms of improved productivity and more social mobility. Our 10-point agenda for the 2015-20 UK Parliament is set out in the AELP Manifesto (https://www.aelp.org.uk/news/submissions/details/aelp-policy-publication-manifesto-for-driving-an-e/).
