Each member will be provided with a Chamber Schools Member logo that can be displayed on letterheards, websites and marketing materials.
The Chamber runs lots of events pretty much every week of the year, and while they are all very diffeent, there is one core objective that underpins them all - they are designed to help you meet the right people to facilitate long-lasting and productive relationships.
This regular forum brings together likeminded individuals and organisations, supporting schools to build better links between education and employers, embed employability into the curriculum and understand current labour market demands.
Access at business member rate to the annual Skills Conference, which brings together businesses and educators to focus on practical activities and policy development, aimed at bridging the gap between education and employment.
Access at member rate to all regional policy conferences, including Manufacturing and Engineering Conference; State of the Economy Conference; Sustainability Summit and CSR Summit – providing a great opportunity for schools to develop their understanding of different sectors and develop links with local businesses.
Keep up to date with industry, economic and political trends, ensuring you align with the needs and future direction of the business population. As a Chamber member, schools have free access to sector forums, strategy and influence groups, Bank of England forums and MP briefings - plus a range of networking events with opportunities to engage with the business community.
A 20% discount off the non-business member rate for all one-day courses within our open course programme (excluding IT and Health and Safety courses, where Chamber business member rate applies – still a saving on non-member rates)
The Chamber is proud to work in partnership with carefully-selected and universally-recognised regional brands – many of which have a national and international presence - and the largest employers across the counties of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.
If you want to expand your reach in the East Midlands, becoming a Chamber Patron is a shrewd move. It enables you to mix with the region's leading businesses at exclusive events, gain insight into what's going to happen and helps raise your profile on multiple levels.
