About AELP

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 670+ 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 38 FE colleges involved in work based learning. AELP Members train 75% of England's 850,000 apprentices currently on programme.

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.

Also of interest is the latest AELP Strategic Prospectus which outlines our members activities over the last twelve months. To download a copy click here

Details of membership fees can be found in the Become a Member section.
