Direct Education Business Partnership CIO


DEBP are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and work with employers to develop bespoke programmes to support young people aged up to 19 and up to 25 for young people with special educational needs and disabilities.  We also work with vulnerable young adults to advance their education.  

As a Supported Employment partner, we work collaboratively with DFN Project SEARCH to deliver Job Coach support for young people/adults – aged 18 to 25 – with special educational needs and disabilities to help them make successful transitions from education to productive adult life and gain the skills they need to achieve equitable employment.

One of our flagship programmes is Raising Aspirations that targets students identified as being most in need.  This includes young people facing multiple barriers to engaging fully with their education.

We are also the STEM Ambassador Hub North Midlands (Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire), South and East Yorkshire. We link schools, community groups etc with volunteers with STEM backgrounds or careers to help inspire the next generation.
