Schools and Business
We are bringing school administrators, funding and administrative bodies, parliamentarians and business people together. If you have an interest in School Work Experience Students or School-based apprenticeships and traineeships, then the SEBCC is here to help!
Penny Cutting the current President of the South East Brisbane Chamber of Commerce (SEBCC) has prided the organisation's strong involvement with schools, with almost all secondary schools (both government and non-government) in the catchment area being current corporate members.
With 2012 well underway, the SEBCC has identified a major focus for continued, but stronger engagement of schools with the business community. A number of key stakeholders have met with the chamber and indicated their willingness to be involved in the chamber's initiative. The SEBCC now has a key foothold to provide an ongoing conduit between schools and business.
The South East Brisbane Chamber of Commerce has recently agreed to act as a 'local hub' connecting businesses and schools within the bridge-to-bridge catchment. Working with The Smith Family Partnership Broker Program, SEBCC has adopted the strategic Local Links Initiative which will identify local businesses (including community organisations) willing to support schools and their young people. Business support will vary and include things such as work experience opportunities, participation in mock interviews, guest speaking, mentoring and many more. This is a new and creative approach in activating existing assets and resources within the local area and looks to promote and enhance future partnerships between schools and businesses to benefit young people.
As part of the SEBCC's investment in the Local Links program, it would be most appreciated if you could take a few minutes to complete the following survey:
