Young Chamber – Inspiring the Next Generation

A unique programme building partnerships between the world of education and the world of business.

Welcome to the Young Chamber, delivered through Dorset Chamber and supported by British Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

The Young Chamber programme was created in response to the annual Ofsted report to Parliament in December 2015, which outlined the importance of strong careers advice and guidance and identified that there is a firm need for schools to improve their links with employers.

National research with employers has also shown that 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 across a range of businesses and organisations in Dorset.  They have inspirational stories and advice to share with young people about the variety of routes to different careers and the qualities needed to succeed in the workplace.

Young Chamber also 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.
