The EIP was set up in September 2006 in order to bring together existing partnerships to continue to work for the common good of all Gateshead students aged 11-19. It has a clear remit, which includes acting as the “14-19 Partnership” for the Gateshead area, and its membership represents all organisations responsible for educational delivery to secondary aged students, including:

  • All mainstream and special secondary school Headteachers
  • Principal and Vice Principal of Gateshead College
  • Learning and Skills Council
  • Connexions Service
  • Work Based Learning Providers
  • Raising Achievement Service
  • Access and Inclusion Service
  • The Council’s Director for learning and Schools

The purpose of the group is to work together to:

  • Raise achievement and improve behaviour and attendance in all school and college provision
  • Promote equality, choice and access to a range of high quality learning provision
  • Support those young people who are at risk of marginalisation or disaffection from participation in education
  • Ensure students have routes into further or higher education, employment or training so that they can achieve economic wellbeing
