Our Patrons

AELP London’s purpose is to ensure that it successfully supports its members through targeted lobbying and a range of value-adding, support services.

Whether you are an independent training provider, an employer provider, university, local authority, FE college or a school, we can help you strengthen your business by lobbying for reforms that will drive growth and quality.

We provide our members with up to date information about the unique challenges (and opportunities) of the London’s skills and employability agenda.

In addition, we’ll provide you with opportunities to network and collaborate with our members and, through our Strategic Forum, the ability to influence our lobbying and engagement strategy.

We offer three types of Memberships, built around the needs of your particular organisation, which you can read through the links below.
