  • DWP Careers Support for schools

    Bromley EBP have built a great partnership with colleagues from the DWP Schools' Team in our joint aim to support young people with careers and employability advice.  Although we have not been able to work face to face with them since March, we are still very much in touch.  Click here to view a Careers Guide produced by DWP which contains some really helpful advice for young people helping them be better prepared for the job market. We hope to be working with Ian and Julie again in 2021.

  • We are Virtually there……

    Although since March due to the current restrictions we have been unable to organise and offer our face to face employability sessions, we haven’t given up our aim to help prepare young people for the world of work.  Following consultation with schools, it was clear that the need for input around careers, opportunities available and how to access them, particularly during these challenging times, was badly needed. Many of our local and national employer partners were keen to help where they could until we can get back to delivering events.  This all coincided with the roll out of Microsoft Teams and we have been working hard to explore how we could facilitate virtual sessions.  We decided to run sector-focused ev...

  • Update from our Partners

    Bromley Education Business Partnership does just that - in providing the link between schools/young people and employers.  Unfortunately, coronavirus has had a significant impact on both groups and government guidelines regarding C19, due to the recent rise in coronavirus cases, mean we will not be working in the face to face way to support young people for some time.

  • Success stories in light of the pandemic

    Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, the job market has changed dramatically.  Bromley EBP has been working with several young people on the YES project and unfortunately during the usual monitoring process we discovered that some previously successful apprentices had been furloughed and, in some cases, made redundant.  It’s not all doom and gloom though – since June nine young people have managed to secure employment and three have decided to return to college to gain additional qualifications. The motivation and determination of these young people is astonishing and inspiring.  Despite all the setbacks and the challenging circumstances, including online assessments and interviews, they have not given up. The employment secured includes a three-year degree apprenticeship in Field Engineering with Arqiva in Wrotham and a Level 3 Apprenticeship with TP Carpentry.  Four young people have started in hospitality and two more in construction with accredited local training.  At the begin...

  • Careers/Jobs Fair - Update

    We were hoping to be able to hold our Jobs Fair at Bromley Central Library on Wednesday 30th September.  Unfortunately, due to restrictions still in place, this will not possible.    We are currently unable to confirm a new date.  However, we are committed to supporting young people in Bromley into employment and our aim is to hold this event once restrictions are eased and it is safe and practical to do so.     Keep an eye on our website and Twitter for updates.
