The Council is committed to promoting strong working links between schools, colleges and employers in north Norfolk.

You can introduce your business and industry to young people in many ways, including:

  • work experience
  • workplace visits
  • attending careers fairs
  • delivering talks
  • becoming an Enterprise Adviser 

Why work with schools?

While some young people have a clear idea of their career ambitions, many do not. Exposure to employers from across a range of sectors will help young people decide their future, whether it be university, apprenticeships or employment with training.

Employers are encouraged to connect with their local schools to provide information about jobs that will be available to young people. They will only know about the various options with your support, and employers may gain an advantage by connecting with potential future talent.

Will I need a DBS check?

It is unlikely that you will need to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check unless you have regular direct contact with school children.

Visitor Economy Network Initiative North Norfolk project

All businesses in the visitor economy - tourism, hospitality, accommodation and retail - are invited to join the Visitor Economy Network Initiative North Norfolk project. It provides guidance and support on networking with local secondary schools and colleges. The Economic Growth team at NNDC manages the project with Kayla Dunne of Visit North Norfolk. The project will end in September 2023, with the aim of a legacy of a continuing network from the sector and education.
