Crewe Pledge Update

The Crewe Pledge has had a busy few months continuing to help put employers at the heart of inspiring the next generation of employees in the area. 

On 19th October over 40 employers joined us for the Crewe Pledge Careers Fair at South Cheshire College and spoke to over 400 young people form local schools and South Cheshire College about careers in their industry.  Many interactive stalls allowed businesses to explain the benefits of working in their industry and the routes to it.

The week earlier, on the 12th October Manchester Metropolitan University, Crewe Town Council and the Crewe Pledge together hosted the Get Experience Fair, supported by our newest member of staff Ian Jones.  Local voluntary organisations and employers had the opportunity to meet over 150 undergraduates studying in the town.  Many young people signed up for volunteer placements which will benefit the local community, help the organisation, and provide valuable work experience for undergraduates.

The Crewe Pledge hosted a speed networking event in September at South Cheshire College.  Over 45 people attended representing a range of local businesses and educationalists.  The feedback was really positive and we are pleased that so many partnerships have been fostered following the event.

The Crewe Pledge is a great way for businesses to work with local young people and promote future careers with them.  We are also working with schools in Nantwich as well as in Crewe ad indeed other Pledges in Cheshire East provide a chance for businesses wanting to work with the wider community.  Any businesses wanting to get involved are more than welcome.  Please contact Trevor Langston at the chamber on 01279 445404 or 07595 496400 or by e-mail on 07595 496400.
