We were really pleased to host the first meeting of the Dorset Young Chamber steering group today.
Michael Tomlinson, Conservative MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole, and Ian Girling, chief executive of the Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry, were among those that attended the meeting.
St Aldhelm’s was the first Dorset school to sign up to the Young Chamber initiative. The scheme is designed to boost students’ skills and make them more employable, which is something we are passionate about. Since we signed up to the initiative, our pupils have already benefited from several guest speakers and visits to local businesses and construction sites.
