Continuing the Chamber’s new initiatives by President Andy Rhind-Tutt, to help build better business, Wiltshire College and Salisbury Chamber joined forces on Saturday to demonstrate what apprenticeships are available and what can be achieved for local businesses.
We were delighted to invite Chamber members and guests from: QinetiQ, Porton Biopharma, SGS Heating and plumbing, The Stones Hotel, Value Cars Group, OG Carpentry and Bassets Sales and Lettings.
The first new vocational visit arranged by Tim Deacon of the Chamber Board saw a selection of members from Salisbury District invited by Wiltshire College to Castle Coombe, where they were introduced to apprenticeship schemes, enjoyed lunch and afternoon refreshments whilst watching a thrilling race day, which included a celebrity race, with Business Entrepreneur Theo Paphitis, who took time out from a busy schedule to talk to a number of the guests.
Chamber Directors Dan Rhind-Tutt and Tim Deacon who both assisted on the day, felt the event was a great success, not only because of clear interaction between members, the Board and Wiltshire College, but that four new members of the new Young Chamber were also identified. The young chamber meets again on 28th July and the next Vocational visit which is open to all members, is to Landford Stone on 5th August, details available on the Chamber web site www.salisburychamber.co.uk
