Ian Greenaway, Chamber Board member and past Chamber President set his term in office with a particular emphasis placed on encouraging businesses and education and training providers to work together in true partnership to unlock the potential of our school-leavers and young adults and this forum promotes this theme.

This forum is currently aimed at secondary and primary schools and academies based in the cities of Derby, Nottingham and the counties of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
