Young Chamber PLUS Membership
£825.00 + VAT per annum
We aim to bridge the gap between the world of education and the world of work and being a Young Chamber PLUS member at your local Chamber of Commerce will give your pupils an insight into the world of work by hearing from businesses directly.
This will help them develop the crucial employability and soft skills which employers value. The Chamber can also help schools develop the skills and knowledge of your senior leadership team and governors, providing opportunities to meet and learn from local businesses and gain an understanding of the local labour market.
We advise all schools to upgrade their memberships to Young Chamber Membership as below to benefit from further soft skill and employability training for their students.
The Young Chamber Membership includes the basic School Chamber Membership, Entry into National Education and Business Partnership Awards and the opportunity for you to pick either three or five additional benefits from the list below that we will work with you to deliver over the academic year:
- Support recruiting Business Governors
