Young Chamber – Inspiring the Next Generation
A unique programme building partnerships between the world of education and the world of business.
Young Chamber is a ground-breaking and innovative programme building links between education and business.
National research with employers has shown there is a growing gap between education and employment, while employers report that a lack of interpersonal skills in young people is often an issue. The aim of Young Chamber in Dorset is to provide a high-quality, cost effective solution for schools / colleges to give young people inspiring and motivational careers advice through the delivery of a bespoke range of activities with businesses. We coordinate activity and provide a forum for the rich and untapped experience of real-life business people from a range of businesses and organisations in Dorset, who have inspirational stories and advice to share with young people about the variety of routes to different careers.
Young Chamber adds value by actively promoting schools and businesses through professional communications and established media channels, to support activity and create engagement between educational establishments and businesses.
