Norfolk Community College is a partnership of organisations and charities from across the local community.

Collectively we can provide support to help local people learn new skills, retrain for new roles, or become self-employed; as well as providing access to specialist support to help overcome barriers to employment – covering areas such as housing problems, debt, and mental health advice.

What is involved?

Norfolk Community College provides a range of services and advice to people seeking employment, training and work experience opportunities.

Whatever the situation our team will do all that they can to help people to achieve their goals at a pace that’s right for them, and in a place that’s near to where they live.

Voluntary Norfolk employs Skills Connectors for the partnership who offer one-to-one advice, help to identify strengths and interests, and the steps to take to improve job prospects.

For those who need more guidance and longer-term support, the partnership can provide Employment Development Workers who offer mentoring and assistance to overcome barriers.

It is difficult to stay focused on training and job searching when crisis situations arise and that’s why we also provide quick access to Multi-Disciplinary Workers who are specialists in housing, debt, and benefits advice.

The partnership also employs a Training Coordinator who provides access to bespoke training to support the development of new skills, and an Employer Broker who provides access to work placement opportunities and to business mentors who can help you to start-up a business or social enterprise.
