A registered charity, The Island Partnership was established in 1988 with the aims and objectives of addressing the high level of unemployment and the low levels of skills and qualifications in this area. Since that time we have helped many hundreds of people change their lives and achieve their aspirations.
Currently, we are also making a difference within our local community and across Kent, with teams of work-placements busy cleaning our streets, parks and alleyways, as we help people gain valuable employment skills and experience.
Based within the bookish and leafy environment of a listed, former County Library building The Island Partnership has determinedly retained an ethos that passionately promotes the limitless rewards of learning within its community. Traditionally that community has represented much of the north western corner of Kent, now though, enhanced by the boundless possibilities presented by information and communication technology that virtual community is in a state of unrestricted growth.
Since its inception the Partnership has evolved and developed within its area to become a leading provider of vocational advice, guidance and training. Over the greater part of the last couple of decades The Island Partnership has worked with literally thousands of individuals, along with businesses and organisations, enhancing lives and enabling individuals to increase the scope of their potential through the medium of newly developed skills and effective qualifications.
Our relationship with clients is characterised by an understanding of the unique development needs of each individual, which is reflected in their training and development plan. You may be an individual seeking to improve your life opportunities, or you may be looking for training for your work-force. The Island Partnership has the experience and expertise to make a difference.
