About the Network

Dorset and Somerset Training Provider Network Ltd (DSTPN) is a company limited by guarantee with a membership consisting of a fee paying members who are training organisations, colleges, employers and stakeholder bodies working in the post 16 education and training sector.

The network vision is to encourage and support providers to operate in a culture of collaborative working for the benefit of member organisations whilst continually enhancing the experience, learning and achievement of learners and meeting employer and community needs.

The sector in which the network operates and the membership it supports is changing extensively due to the economic environment and the shift in the contracting, skills and investment policy.

DSTPN will react to the changing environment in which it operates by being aware of its membership needs and the community and adapting its service accordingly
