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 600+ 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 over 50 FE colleges involved in work based learning. 70% plus of apprenticeships in England are delivered by AELP members.
Over 70% of the Work Programme prime contractors are AELP members with many other members delivering the programme as sub-contractors. AELP providers currently engage with almost 300,000 employers across the country and last year they helped 117,240 learners complete an apprenticeship.
AELP has a wide variety of publications which members can access via the website. An example is the first annual review 'A report of ALP's early years' which documents how AELP came into existence and its operations to 2007. To download a copy of this publication, please click here.
