A chamber of commerce is helping young people gain a valuable entry into the world of work.

Hertsmere Connect is offering to put schools who are members of the organisation in touch with local businesses who could give young people internships or work experience.

Chief executive of Hertsmere Connect Ian Welland said work experience was vital in giving young people a "competitive advantage over their peers", as well as teaching them skills needed in the workplace.

Schools who wish to engage with Hertsmere Connect and be put in touch with the business community, should contact Ian Welland on 01923 442442 or email
