London Chamber of Commerce and Industry
CET supported LCCI’s Young Chamber pilot project to improve business engagement in schools, especially (although not exclusively) among SMEs. The project was designed to test out different types of business-school-student interventions in order to identify the best ways to help students and teachers better understand the world of work, and to develop employability skills.
The project focused on the Croydon area in its initial phase. Ten schools and 45+ businesses were involved with 3,000+ students and pupils benefitting from in a series of events and activities. The project led to the production of a model of business engagement in schools which is being extended in Croydon and delivered more widely across London.”
