Norfolk Community College Project Reaches Milestones


The Norfolk Community College project has hit a major milestone, having supported more than 150 people in Norfolk to get back into employment.

Since 2017 The Norfolk Community project has assisted over 1,000 people in Norfolk who’ve experienced periods of unemployment to learn new skills, get back into work and find a career they love.

The Norfolk Community College Project is funded by the European Social Fund and National Community Lottery Fund helping unemployed adults in Norfolk back into training and employment.

By offering a tailored, flexible range of training and support sessions, the Norfolk Community College project sees a number of providers working in partnership to offer specialist advice on how people can move into growing sectors, as well as CV and interview coaching.

East Coast College in Great Yarmouth deliver the Norfolk Community College project with its delivery partners – Access Community Trust, ACE (Action Community Enterprises CIC), DIAL, Future Project, the Feed and Voluntary Norfolk – offering a range of tailored individual support to address barriers to work based on identified need.

Stuart Jennings, Project Lead for the Norfolk Community College project, said: “This marks a very special achievement for the project. At a time when people need employment support the most, I am delighted that our project team has continued to provide the support people require to develop their skills and find employment.”


Kevin Bayes, Projects Manager at East Coast College, said: “Covid-19 has already had a big impact on the labour market. This is set to continue as businesses continue to respond to the challenges they face. I am pleased that the Norfolk Community College continues to offer employment support to meet the changing needs that are facing us.”
