Somerset Education Business Partnership refers young people who are currently not in education, employment or training – or most at risk of becoming so.

Somerset Education Business Partnership understands that employers need to build strong connections with schools, colleges and other training providers so they can recruit the right people with the right skills. Somerset Chamber of Commerce hosts the Education Business Partnership at its Equity House office, enabling the team to connect directly with businesses to understand their recruitment and skills needs. They receive referrals from partners supporting young people in Somerset and then seek the most appropriate opportunity for each young person – based on their interests and current capabilities.
