Bridging the Gap between Business and Young People
Norfolk’s future in the hands of our young people and so it is in all our interests that they are prepared for the world of work and understand better the opportunities open to them locally.
There is already much very good work happening across county but Norfolk Chambers feel that more can be done and we are working with our members both business and education leaders to find what will make the most difference.
Part of that partnership working is to help profile the education establishments that are working with us.
Research shows there is a growing gap between business and young people; Norfolk Chambers want to help bridge that gap by offering schools our discounted Young Chambers membership package. We are uniquely placed, with over 950 members, to create a strategic partnership between your school and the local business community. We will support you to deliver business engagement activities for your students that help them learn and develop the skills for their future.
Norfolk Chambers are working closely with the New Anglia LEP to deliver bespoke benefits to 11 schools, encouraging strategic partnerships between them and the business community. The aim of this work is to increase students' exposure to the workplace and different working environments to raise aspirations and create a long-lasting employability function within each school.
