There is a range of support and help available to employers wishing to develop their workforce.
Bromley Education Business Partnership
Bromley Education Business Partnership (Bromley EBP) is an integral part of the London Borough of Bromley's Youth Services. “We link young people with business and the community” The team has vast experience of working closely with employers and volunteers to support young people (14-19) and help them be better prepared for the world of work.
We provide opportunities for employers to work with young people to help them gain new skills and experiences through real-life contact with professionals from business and the community. We do this through our various programmes:
- Bromley Mentoring Initiative – we recruit, screen and train adults from the local business community to be mentors spending time with a young person with the aim of motivating and encouraging them to improve their skills and raise their self-esteem and aspirations.
- Work experience – we work with secondary and special schools to help support them to offer safe and valuable placements for students in a range of sector workplaces and are always looking for employers who are willing to host a young person in their workplace.
- Enterprise and employability events – you can partner with us and support our employability events for young people. The events are aimed at young people (14-19) in Bromley schools and are designed to help them understand skills and attributes needed by employers in the workplace of today.
