Connecting Schools with Business
Salisbury Education & Business Partnership is a joint initiative between Salisbury's main business organisations and the local secondary schools and colleges.
Many local business people already support local schools (whether supporting as Governors, offering work experience or attending careers events etc). However, this is typically on a more individual and 'ad-hoc' basis. Consequently, lots of opportunities are missed for local businesses to be seen, get involved and present themselves and their staff as positive role models with the result that we lose a lot of local talent who simply 'write off' working around the Salisbury area.
This initiative has the full commitment from both the local business organisations (Salisbury & District Chamber of Commerce, Salisbury BID and Sarum Rotary Club) and the leaders of the schools/colleges involved - as well as wider support.
