    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.

There were various sectors from a number of different industries, providing advice.  I met a lot of people who are currently going down the apprenticeship route and saw that they were doing what they love.
