Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Young Chamber Membership


Bridging the gap between business and education has never been more important.

At a time when school finances are being hardest hit, it’s vital to find a proven, cost effective way of ensuring students are “equipped for the next stage of their education, training or employment”(OFSTED)

A simple, straight forward connection between young people and business, offered by Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, will link your school with almost 5,000 business contacts throughout ten local authority areas.

Young Chamber membership of the UK’s largest chamber of commerce helps schools:

  • Facilitate student visits to local businesses

  • Arrange business talks from local employers

  • Access mock/practice interviews

  • Widen access to advice on post 16 options

  • Create PR opportunities

Plus, new, free access to our Young Assembly, which gives pupils a voice in influencing policy changes in education and the devolution of skills in Greater Manchester.
