BEK Connect

Sparking Curiosity

We create opportunities for our young people to apply and build upon the skills they have developed with us. This is achieved by connecting our graduates with inspirational people working in professions or organisations that appeal to them and by providing further training tailored to their specific needs. We ensure there is an open dialogue with our young people so that any training needs they identify for themselves are incorporated into our offering. Our aim is to spark their curiosity and encourage them to explore.

Personalised Experiences

Mentoring

As BEK graduates begin to consider what their next steps after school might be - further education or starting their career - our mentors can help support them by sharing their specific and relatable experiences.

Our partner organisations offer graduates an insight into working life in a particular sector as well as hands on experience.
