Connected
"I enjoy working for PLP, connecting with different professions."

Our network of experts combine with schools all around the city, allowing us to deliver the service that children need, no matter who or where they are.

Responsive
"I have always found PLP to be incredibly responsive to our needs."

We’re ready to jump into action to respond to schools’ and pupils’ needs. Our dynamic, highly-trained team are ready for action – schools know they can rely on us.

Creative
"Everyone is committed to find a creative way to remove barriers and support families."

Resourceful, perceptive and well-informed, we know there’s not always a one-size-fits-all solution. We explore different approaches to find the best way to help.

Supportive
"They enable us to identify and support the needs for the children."

We’re here to take care of people. Ensuring school staff and parents are given the right help and resources ultimately means that children benefit.

You’re in good company

Our ability to bring children, families and schools the support they need relies on the relationships and connections we make. Here’s a sample of the feedback we’ve had from people who have called on Plymouth Learning Partnership’s services.

Thank you all so much for everything over the past 2 years! For enabling me to start my teaching career and for working so hard to make everything is as smooth as possible!

“We find the support of the Property Compliance team invaluable and very professional. The team works hard to ensure we have buildings in good condition and up to date with legislation. They provide helpful guidance and support when we need it and are always on hand in an emergency.”

“It has given me the opportunity to reach children and families who may never have been able to access therapy or support in the way that we give. It has allowed me to work with a variety of people and explore my practise over the years, enabling me to become the practitioner I am..”

I have worked for Supply Plus since 2016, 7 years, and I would highly recommend this company. The staff have always been professional, caring and supportive. They are always polite and friendly and very importantly keep you informed of events. It has been a pleasure to work for Supply Plus, they are a wonderful team to work for.

“PLP have been really supportive towards the huge variety of challenging needs that we face within our school. There is always somebody available to talk to at the end of the phone and no question is too trivial..”

“MAST are amazing. All of the staff are resourceful, compassionate and hardworking. Everyone is committed to find a creative way to remove barriers and support children and their families to move forwards. I would not be able to do my job without the support, expertise and advice that the MAST team provide. They are always there when we need them the most.”

We are very appreciative for the many years of care, support, professionalism and insight that Plymouth Learning Partnership (PLP) has been able to offer our school. Their expertise in the field of Safety & Health is second to none. From asbestos to zonal fire issues, PLP visiting consultants are extremely knowledgeable and are able to offer advice on a wide range of issues to ensure compliance. Just ask a question and they always have the answers you need! In addition, they are able to offer training across many subject areas, either online or in person, fulfilling all our school CPD needs. PLP are providers of a friendly, professional and valued partnership and I would highly recommend using their services.

"From my first days over 10 years ago as one of 4 PAPH members, I have enjoyed the challenges and rewards. Being part of a team that was innovative in a fast-moving environment made each day, week, month, and year feel different, but the end goal was always to support and be there for our schools. I take pride in my work and am proud to be part of PLP."

“PLP give my school access to incredible, hard-working, knowledgeable and caring experts in education. The impact we see in Speech and Language and through workshops and CPD is considerable. The support PLP, especially MAST, gives us is inspiring - and vital to us providing the high quality provision we know our children and families deserve. Everyone is friendly and wants to help. It is a pleasure to do business with PLP and its different subdivisions..”

"Andrew has been a great help to me personally. I started in a school with no health and safety or educational background. I felt quite overwhelmed, however, Andrew guided me through the compliance requirements and reassured me when I needed advice. He is very patient and explains things clearly. He is very knowledgeable and an expert in his field. I’m not sure how I would have managed without this support and guidance!"
