SIAS is today delighted to announce that it has become a Patron member of The Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP), a national membership body, representing around 800 organisations that deliver training and vocational learning.
Steve Smith, Managing Director of SIAS said: “We are thrilled to be joining AELP as a Patron member. This is a strong statement of intent from SIAS and in line with our new ambitious strategic approach as we continue to evolve and scale at pace. We are really looking forward to being a part of the sector’s premier trade body which supports employers and learning providers who are delivering a wide range of training, vocational learning, and employability programmes to millions of learners nationally.
“Our organisation’s values and beliefs align closely with those of AELP, including a drive for equal and open access for learners, equity among sector stakeholders, and a requirement for a more joined up approach, and we are excited to see what we can achieve together.”
Cheryl Swales AELP Acting Operations Director said: “We are delighted to welcome SIAS as a new patron of AELP. This is a great opportunity for us to work more closely with one of the leading organisations in our sector, and we are looking forward to building a stronger partnership with them.”
SIAS has become a Patron member with immediate effect and is looking forward to meeting fellow Patrons and other members of AELP very soon.
