Welcome to the East Riding Education and Skills Partnership (ESP) 14-19 section.
The ESP is a non-statutory voluntary Partnership of stakeholders in education and training that supports strategic activity and cross-sector collaboration across the range of 14-19 Pathways (see below). Membership of the Partnership is open to any education and training provider and/or stakeholder organisation serving East Riding learners.
For further information about the ESP please explore the links below or use the menu on the left.
Since 2013, the participation age was raised so that school leavers (Year 11) are required to stay in some form of education or training until at least their 18th birthday in order to give them more skills and options for their future. The main options for young people are:
School Sixth form or Sixth Form College
Many Sixth Forms offer A-Levels purely in academic subjects; some offer a wider range of courses including things like vocational qualifications.
Further Education College
Further Education Colleges are for students aged 16 and often offer a much wider range of courses at all different levels, including A Levels and vocational qualifications.
Apprenticeships and Traineeships
This is a good way for young people to earn money and learn at the same time. On an apprenticeship, young people are employed in a real job and receive quality training to help them get a nationally-recognised qualification.
Further information about schools and colleges serving the East Riding area, and the courses offered can be found in the Hull and East Riding online prospectus:

The Strategy Group makes decisions on behalf of the Partnership and meets a minimum of three times each academic year.

The Membership of the Strategy Group is representative of the overall Partnership membership and is at the level of Headteacher/Principal/Senior Leader.
The Operational Group is responsible for driving forward the annual priorities and determining the need for and supporting the Practitioner Forums, specific projects and the Partnership CPD Program. The Operational Group is also specifically responsible for implementing the partnership's objectives relating to Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG). All partner organisations are invited to participate in Operational Group meetings.
Local Area Partnerships (LAPs) are active in parts of the East Riding where partners find it beneficial to meet to discuss and respond to local issues in the context of the overall Partnership objectives. LAPs currently meet in the following geographic areas: Beverley and District and Holderness.
The Practitioner Forums are established to target and progress specific priority objectives and projects at a practical level.

In recognition of and response to the shared CPD needs of partners, a programme of CPD activities is offered throughout the academic year. There are two elements to the programme:

The aim of the network is to ensure staff are fully up to date with the national policy and local strategies and to enhance local knowledge and experience of opportunities for young people. The network will aim to meet the needs of staff working across a wide range of range of roles including senior leaders, governors and tutors. It will provide opportunities for sharing good practice across our wide range of training and education providers, and identify future training needs.
Each event will be facilitated by the Education & Skills Partnership Team, and have a relevant theme and/or guest speaker, details of which will be circulated in advance. The themes for each meeting will be determined by the Partnership Operational Group at the start of each academic year to support the Partnership priorities - STEM, CEIAG, Alternative Learning and reducing the FSM gap at Level 3.
Members will be notified of the themes and topics in advance so that appropriate staff can be identified to attend.
There will be a minimum of 3 half-day CPD events during the 2017/18 Academic Year, provisional dates are as follows:
