Share your experiences of non-university education and training

Published Wednesday, 13 June 2018

Bromley’s Education, Children and Families Select Committee is keen to hear Bromley residents’ experiences of non-university higher education and training.

This feedback will help to inform the Select Committee’s review of post-16 non-university technical education and apprenticeship opportunities in Bromley on Wednesday 4 July, and help to build a new emphasis on diversifying choices in further education for young people. Details will be shared anonymously at any committee meetings and in reports.

Select Committee Chairman Councillor Nicholas Bennett said: "We would like to hear from those who chose technical education or an apprenticeship over going to university. What are your experiences? What elements helped you progress along your career path, what wasn’t so good and also what you feel could enhance your experiences further through education.”

Representatives from leading local employers, engineering providers and from London South East Colleges will also be invited to share their expertise at the Select Committee meeting at 7pm on 4 July 2018. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

The Select Committee examines Executive decisions, monitors performance and develops and reviews policy on the council’s education function, including the opportunities for education, training and learning outside the school environment as well as examining Executive decisions and reviewing policy on care services for children and families, children with special needs, fostering and adoption and family support services.

We welcome your views, so please share your experiences and feedback with us regarding technical and vocational education by emailing Philippa Gibbs by 18 June at
