About Us

The Sussex Council of Training Providers is a community of training providers that offers apprenticeships, work-based learning or pre-employment training in Sussex. Our mission is their success. We also welcome Commercial Associate and Partner Associate members who provide relevant services.

We help our members to grow their businesses by giving them the opportunity to network with other local providers, funders, Local Enterprise Partnerships, Local Authorities and national bodies such as the ESFA and the Institute for Apprenticeships.

We represent all our members by promoting their training provision in schools, local community groups and business networks, at Local Authority events, and via social media and our Apprenticeships in Sussex website.

We also provide tailored newsletters, meetings, CPD events, representation and information. Most of our work is based on the feedback we receive from our members about what they need.

Established in 1986, we currently have 107 members.

SCTP is run for members by members.  The SCTP Board is made up of members who are elected from and by the membership, who are supported by an impartial executive team. Please see the SCTP team for further information.  To see what SCTP is aiming to do to support its members, you read the SCTP Business Plan 2014 – 2017.
