Our History

The Switch was established in 1991 (formally Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership) and is located in the heart of one of the most important business hubs in the world. In 2021, we underwent a rebrand as ‘The Switch’ to celebrate our 30th year and to create a modern, refreshed brand reflective of our programmes and corporate partners. 

We are a trusted partner to hundreds of businesses and employers, including some of the world’s leading FTSE 100 companies.

Operating in one of the most diverse and disadvantaged communities in the UK for this long period, we understand the social and cultural challenges of changing attitudes to education and work.

We are well connected and highly regarded in the community and employability sector, being active members of numerous national and local partnerships, networks and school governing bodies.
