With the Chambers link with DYW West Lothian Regional group we can look into business links with education and the opportunities this provides. The aim of the group is to significantly reduce youth unemployment across West Lothian and Scotland. The employer-led regional group aims to strengthen links between businesses and education for the benefit of our young people and our economy.
