The Essex Provider Network (EPN) maintain strategic partnerships across pan Essex, representing and contributing on behalf of our members, towards future capital projects and skills development programmes.

Our members benefit from strong working relationships with our colleagues within SELEP, the three local authorities/districts across Essex, the DWP, ESFA and Ofsted, placing our membership at the forefront of skills and workforce development.

In a time of rapid change, intense lobbying and funding initiative opportunities, our wider membership value and benefit from a strong cohesive network. Information and sharing of good practice, distributed across the network, inclusive of independent training providers, all Essex FE & Adult learning colleges, plus a variety of influential associate organisations, supports a collaborative approach towards enhanced skills provision across Essex.
