Work experience is defined as ‘a placement with an employer in which a young person carries out a range of tasks in much the same way as an employee, but with the emphasis on the learning aspects of the experience’.

Current legislation states that students may only legally participate in work experience during their last two years of compulsory education or above.

On behalf of Bromley Local Authority, Bromley EBP works with schools to ensure their work experience programmes satisfy the requirements of current legislation and local guidance. This includes providing a package of support services to help schools deliver high quality work experience schemes.

Bromley EBP's Work Experience support package for 2021-22 can be found in the 'Downloads' section.

Bromley Council runs a work experience scheme offering placements each year in a variety of departments across the Council. Placements are available to young people in Years 10, 11 and 12 who are looking for work experience as part of an organised school scheme. Priority for placements is given to Bromley Children Looked After and young people who live in Bromley and/or attend a Bromley school. Placements are for 1 or 2 weeks duration in term time only.

Placements are allocated on a first come first served basis according to availability with the deadline for applications closing on 31st March 2022.  We are really hoping that the LBB work experience programme can go ahead for the academic year 2021/22 following the lifting of most Covid-19 restrictions on 19th July 2021 and the gradual return to the workplace as set out by the LBB Chief Executive.

If you are in Year 10 or above and attend a Bromley secondary school or live in the Borough, you can apply for a work experience placement with the Council by completing the application form which can be found in the 'Downloads' section.  Please complete and email to Karen Lubbock at as soon as possible and by 31st March 2022.
