To help us keep up-to-date on local needs and trends, our work is guided by a steering group and a range of networks. These provide local people and services with the opportunity to tell us about what we are getting right, what we need to improve, and what we need to do differently.
If you would like to get in touch with our steering group or want to become involved in one of our networks, please use the enquires form on our Contacts page.
Our steering group is made up of equal representation from community groups and specialist services. Opportunities to join the steering group, as and when vacancies arise, will be advertised on this website, along with details of all agendas and minutes. All steering group members are provided with an induction and training.

Agenda and minutes from all steering group meetings will be posted here beginning in Autumn 2017.
Our networks provide the steering group with important information about what is happening on the ground. They also provide people with the opportunity to come together, to share learning, and to mentor each other.
We appreciate that attending network meetings can be time-consuming and involve travelling long distances. That is why, wherever possible, we provide remote access to these networks including telephone and video conferencing. You can also stay in touch with these networks by joining social media groups.
Current networks are listed below.
|Employer Network||Provides businesses with the opportunity to shape new training provision, enabling the Community College to prepare people for current and future job opportunities.|
|Front-Line Practitioner Network||Provides advice and support workers with the opportunity to find out about what is happening in their area, to work collaboratively and to make better use of resources.|
|Community College Network||Provides SMEs from the community, voluntary and social enterprise sector with an opportunity to develop new partnerships to enhance training and employment services in Norfolk.|
