Norfolk County Council wishes to establish a list of pre-approved providers to deliver a programme of workshops to give young people the information and support they need to move successfully between school, college, university and into work. There is evidence to suggest that the earlier children and young people are exposed to different types of career, the more likely they are to have broader aspirations for their future selves. Research shows that children make, or more importantly, disregard career decisions and pathways at a very early age. Getting the chance to meet a wide range of people doing different jobs is particularly important for those children from disadvantaged backgrounds who may have fewer successful role models, either at home or in their local communities.
This activity will deliver world of work programmes within primary schools.

The NOA will work with approved providers to ensure that schools are supported to deliver at least one world of work/enterprise activity within their school each academic year. Activities will be chosen by schools to fit within their existing plans and schools can select a combination of activities. There are 3 lots covering 1. Delivery of enterprise days within school (full day activity), 2. Delivery of curriculum led World of Work activity (half day) and 3. Delivery of Primary World of Work sessions (1 hour)
To apply for this opportunity please download the documents attached, complete and return them as detailed in the application document. The budget for this project in total is £100,000.
