Quality Standards

All London EBPs have agreed to deliver activities to a Pan London or national standard.

National standard for EBPOs
The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) have produced this document to outline the required national standard for all Education Business Partnership Organisations. The National EBPNetwork has been commissioned to assess EBPOs and, where an organisation meets the criteria, award the National Standard.

Award for Education Business Exceleence (AEBE)
The Institute for Education Business Excellence (IEBE) is the professional body for EBPs, dedicated to promoting the highest possible standards. The Award for Education Business Excellence Standard was approved by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) in May 2008.

National Standard for work experience
The DCSF National Standard sets out minimum criteria for work experience organisers. This standard is not assessed. The University of Warwick's Centre for Education and Industry (CEI) administer a nationally recognised standard which provides organises with independently assessed accreditation.
