    Day Release Degree from the University of Chichester

    The University of Chichester is partnering with forward-looking businesses committed to developing their staff to provide an opportunity for students to combine employment with degree-level study. Employers provide full or part-time salaried positions, a work-based mentor, and contribute towards tuition fees. You can offer the same opportunity to promising and ambitious existing employees also. 
    The University provides support with recruitment and selection of students with employers making the final decision on who to take on. Costs are typically shared between the company and the student who qualify for a student loan. 
     
    What does this mean to your business?

    * Business impact - the business will benefit from work-related projects agreed with you which enables the student to make a real difference the business while they are learning 
    * Innovation - through study, students will bring the latest new approaches, ideas and research to your business giving you an edge over your competitors 
    * Talent Management - Ultimately you will have a qualified, experienced, committed employee that will be a dynamic asset to the business's future.

    If you are interested please talk to Andrew Adams (07796 655247 - a.adams@chi.ac.uk at the University of Chichester's School of Enterprise Management and Leadership

    Are you an ex-student of WHS Worthing High School?

    Current Year 11 Student Leaders are looking to develop a program whereby ex-students are invited back to the school to support careers provision and help students with their choices for further education. Ex Students would be given the opportunity to talk to current students about their Higher/ Further/ or Vocational experiences. This would provide our current students with more first-hand information when looking to make important decisions during their education, for example when making their year 9 option choices or choosing their pathways for higher education.
    If you would like some more information about the project then please contact Karen Hayler at khayler@worthinghigh.net  Tel: 01903 229275 by the end of February 2013.

    BilliBusiness Lunch Club

    Thursday 14th February
    from 12.45pm until 2pm

    Our BilliBusiness Lunch Club will be meeting from 12.45pm until 2pm in the Thai Cuisine, located in Jengers Mead.

    Members and non-members are invited to attend this sociable networking opportunity and self-promote their business services and products over lunch and a couple of drinks.

    The purpose of the BilliBusiness Lunch Club is to be a business referral forum rather than a “talking shop” gathering, and each month one member will be invited to give a presentation of their particular business lasting 5-10 minutes.

    The cost should be no more than £15 per head (depending on your choice from the menu) payable on the day. Drinks will be at your own discretion although jugs of water will be provided on each table.

    This is a great opportunity for you to meet and mix with other local business people in an informal and social setting, whilst building upon your contact list for local businesses.

    To confirm your attendance, in order to advise the restaurant of numbers in advance, we would appreciate you contacting the Chamber's Secretary on
    07984 959281 or by emailing secretary@billingshurstchamber.co.uk

    The BilliBusiness Lunch Club is free for Chamber members but there will be a charge of £2 for each non-member to attend.
