Young Chamber - Suffolk Chamber of Commerce

Young Chamber is a new member offer for schools from the Accredited Chambers of Commerce in the UK.

Its purpose is to bridge the gap between businesses and education. 

Young Chamber provides a range of different ways in which Chambers of Commerce can help schools and colleges tap into the knowledge, skills and experience that local businesses can provide students for them to succeed in the world of work.

How does it help me?

By signing up to a Young Chamber membership schools will be able to take advantage of the many connections that Chambers have within the local business community.

Students will gain insight into the world of work, and get the chance to learn about the different careers they could have. They will also learn what skills they need to pursue a successful career once they leave education.

Best of all, Young Chamber helps schools meet Ofsted (or relevant school inspectorate) requirements around provision of careers advice, preparation of pupils for employment, and engagement with employers.

How do I find out more?

Launched in 2015, Young Chamber is being managed by Suffolk Chamber of Commerce.
