  • 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 ro...

  • 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. We have consulted with our key contacts at Bromley schools to find out how we might better support young people with work related learning in this new world.  The responses indicate they are still keen for help with advice and guidance for young people and specifically with 1:1 bespoke job seeking.  The schools are keen for us to run our employability eve...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Every dog has its day!

    Every dog has its day!

    Through the YES project, BEBP offers direct support to our CLA and Care Leavers around developing their employability skills and helping to provide placements to support their progress to work. E is a CLA who was referred to BEBP in November 2018 for work experience to support her college course in Animal Management.  We managed to secure her a two week placement during Easter 2019 at The Willow Bird of Prey Centre at Coolings Garden Centre.  This was a great success and confirmed to E that she wanted to pursue a career with animals so we were able to help her investigate apprenticeship opportunities in that sector.  In September 2019, she started a Level 2 Apprenticeship in Animal Management & Behaviour at Happy Tails Doggy Day Care in Sevenoaks. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, E was furloughed in March and, of course, was concerned the apprenticeship wouldn’t continue.  The good news is she returned to her placement in May with a pay rise!  Her responsibilities now include o...
