Ceo, Education and Employers, Drawing the Future: Student Aspirations Research
Nick Chambers is the founder and CEO of the charity, Education and Employers. The charity aims to provide young people with the inspiration, skills and opportunities they need to help them achieve their potential by connecting schools and colleges with volunteers from the world of work. Prior to setting up the charity in 2009, Nick was Director of Education at Business in the Community. During this time, he oversaw the production of a report on school governance on behalf of the National Council of Education Excellence. The Council, chaired by the Prime Minister, considered how best to mobilise businesses and universities to work with schools and colleges. Between 2000 and 2006 Nick was Director of Development at St Paul’s School where he was responsible, along with the Governors, for reviewing and articulating the school’s vision and developing a strategic plan to achieve this. In 1992 he obtained a PGCE and taught in two secondary schools.
