Back to Skills

Princes Trust

As Norfolk heads back to school this week, we’re heading back to skills to look at how Norfolk’s charities support development and employment in our county

We’ve been busy connecting with local businesses and top Norfolk employers to build opportunities for people all over Norfolk, especially those furthest from the workplace, helping them to improve their skills and secure experience.
