Employers help young people find out about the world of work

The London Borough of Bromley has a commitment within its ‘Building a Better Bromley’ statement to help support the Borough’s residents, especially those deemed vulnerable, by supporting them into work.  Local and national employers who volunteer their time to work with Bromley EBP make a huge contribution to this agenda.

On Tuesday 13th March a number of employers including BSPS Ltd, Clarion Group, FM Conway, Nat West and DWP worked with a group of over 30 students from Year 11 at Langley Park School for Boys.  The boys had been identified by the school as needing a bit more help and direction to make sensible choices for their Post 16 employment or training.  Each student got personalised help with preparing a CV and also a mock interview with an employer.  Thanks to all the employers who helped on the day.

On Friday 16th March an employability event was held at the Central Library, Bromley for a small group of young people (16-19) who were referred by LBB agencies as needing some extra help to prepare for their future. Employers helped introduce them to the range of opportunities and with advice and guidance around their CV and job seeking skills.  Three of the young people particularly impressed employers and we are keeping our fingers crossed they will benefit from an interview and hopefully an apprenticeship!  Thanks to Bell Group, Clarion Group, Direct Line, FLR Spectron, Rainbow Day Nursery, JACE and Middleton Murray training providers for supporting the event.
