BCP Careers Hub Launch Event

BCP Careers Hub Launch Event 

We were delighted to welcome headteachers, career leaders, enterprise advisers and governors to our BCP Dorset Career Hub Celebration Dinner at the Marriott Highcliffe Hotel, Bournemouth from 6.30 pm – 9.00 pm on Thursday 26 September. 
This event was planned to celebrate success of our BCP and to bring the 18 schools working in the Dorset Career Hub together to recognise success achieved to date and to share the next steps of the journey with schools that are part of the Dorset Career Hub. It was great to be able to share that young people are making progress and recent State of the Nation 2019 Figures show.

Young peoples’ skills and work readiness are improving. Schools, colleges and business now work together on a national scale.
