St Helens Chamber Education Programmes

St Helens Chamber believes that young people need contact with the business community to gain valuable skills, knowledge and experience to complement their academic qualifications.

What we’re doing in schools now

We currently are running two programmes for schools, eligibility does apply so please get in touch for more details.

Learning to Work

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

The programme is split into 5 sessions, each designed to give young people an opportunity to learn about themselves & explore opportunities.

Why work with the Education team?

St Helens Chamber’s Education team will help put your school at the heart of the business community and provide opportunities to showcase your school and the value of your services to local employers.

We can deliver fun and engaging educational workshops, which give your pupils the chance to learn more about the world around them and to start thinking about careers in the local area when they finish school.
