With centres in England, Scotland, and Wales, Rathbone reach over 5,000 people each year and are a holder of the Bronze Fair Train National Quality Standard for work experience and the Matrix Standard for Information, Advice and Guidance.
As a division of NCG, one of the UK's largest national training and colleges groups, Rathbone support NCG's purpose of Unlocking Potential Through Learning, working with government, employers and partners to help thousands of people start or develop a career. Their programmes offer opportunities to improve Math's and English whilst gaining qualifications and valuable work experience and also apprenticeships in a range of employment sectors. They also run specialist provision for young people aged 14+ who are partially or fully excluded from school and a number of street level outreach projects to engage young people who are not in education, employment or training, encouraging them to invest in themselves and their local communities.
Elaine Smith, Head of Customer Experience at Rathbone said "We are thrilled to become Corporate Affiliate Members of the IEP. As a charity that works with some of the most disengaged young people in the UK we understand the importance of working with partners who are equally committed to bringing about real social change and supporting individuals through innovative training and employability support. We believe the IEP are key in bringing about this change."
IEP Chairman Scott Parkin FIEP said "We are delighted to have Rathbone Training on board as Partners. Their ethos that 'every young person should have the opportunity to fulfil his or her potential' is very much in tune with our beliefs and the beliefs of our membership who work to support a range of young people from all walks of life. We are looking forward to an interesting and beneficial partnership".
