St Helens Chamber Education Programmes

Every session of our Education Programmes breaks down pupil’s perceived barriers, and encourages them to dream big and aim high when it comes to their own career aspirations.

Its vital that young people have access to careers advice and guidance, and to educate them on the opportunities open to them in our local area.

With every session, we’re opening young people’s eyes to career opportunities they may never have dreamed of, and here’s how…

What we do in schools

We currently are running two programmes for schools, each designed to inspire and motivate pupils to succeed.

The sessions open pupil’s eyes to the types of careers available to them in their local area – and shows them that they can achieve anything they set their mind to!

Every session of the Education Programme breaks down barriers pupils perceive, and encourages them to dream big and aim high when it comes to their own career aspirations.

Pupils are excited to take part in interactive sessions, and always come away energised and with a whole new perspective on their own skills and capabilities…

What programmes are available?

Learning to Work

The Learning to Work programme is designed to provide schools with high quality career related learning and personal development support.

Along with the team, who makes this all possible?

We couldn’t offer this programme without the support of our sponsors.

This group of businesses allow us to deliver the programme at a reduced cost to 31 schools in the area.

Each business has their own reason for sponsoring the programme, and all of them are giving back to the local community and inspiring the next generation to aim higher.

Thank you to…

Brendon International
Starbank Panel Products
Approved Power Services
2U Foods


With further sponsorship, we can reach even more schools and inspire even more local children to aim high and show them their goals really are achievable!

We’re currently working with 31 schools in the area, but there are still 25 Primary schools without the programme – and we can only offer this with your help.
