Beacon Heath Church - Connections re Southbrook College Pupils

I met with Brian Murray, Pastor of Beacon Heath Church. I have worked with Brian at Beacon Heath Working Together meetings for that area of the city. Brian was keen to explore ‘Disability Confidence’ as Beacon Heath Church has links to Southbrook College at Countess Wear who are a special education establishment. The church take 3 students per term from Southbrook for work experience in the church cafĂ© and around the church generally. Brian wishes to add value to this programme by developing further links for both the church and Southbrook with wider employability opportunities.

I devised a suggested programme targeting the neighbouring Pynes Hill business district and suggested that the church work closely with students taking time to discover their skills and passions and then look to target ‘best-fit’ areas of opportunity. I have also made introductions to both Tesco Exe Vale (employer links) and 2TimesDo (digital skills). Brian has returned to me saying that this portfolio of ideas and connections has set him off in a whole new area of thinking in regards to potential opportunities for his work experience students.
