Chamber Schools Member

Chamber Schools Membership offers outstanding opportunities for schools to be associated with the British Chambers of Commerce’s national Chamber of the Year – and to benefit from its products and services. What’s more – it’s absolutely free.

The Benefits


As part of this membership, free to all schools throughout the region, you will benefit from:


Free access to the Chamber’s dedicated Schools Forum

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.


Annual Skills Conference

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 to all regional policy conferences

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.


Free access to three sector forums and policy events a year

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.


Discounted access to Chamber Training courses

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)

This is a unique opportunity for schools to join and be aligned with the award-winning, leading regional business representation in the region – absolutely free.
