St Helens Chamber is committed to making sure every young person in St Helens is ready, willing, and able to contribute to our economy and community.
We understand career learning has a long-lasting impact on children’s development and their perceptions of their own potential – so it is important that they have access to good careers advice and can find out more about the jobs available to them across the Region.
Through the Chamber programmes, we are committed to opening the eyes of young people by having real conversations about what opportunities are available to them and how they can achieve their goals.
What we do in schools (Primary and Secondary)
We currently are running the Learning to Work Programme across Primary Schools in the St Helens Borough, which consists of five-half day sessions, designed to showcase the types of careers available to them in their local area – and show them that they can achieve anything they set their mind to!
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…
Through our involvement with Secondary Schools, our Enterprise Coordinator brings schools, colleges and Enterprise Advisers in the area together to further develop effective employer engagement plans.
Working together with Local Enterprise Partnerships, the company is building a national network of Enterprise Advisers and this is coordinated by the Chamber for the St Helens and Halton area.
