Lynn has been chosen as one of five sites across Norfolk where new training centres will be set up creating around 40 new jobs across the county.

The centres will offer young people aged between 16 and 19, or up to 24 if they have learning needs and disabilities, the chance to learn new skills and undergo training to help them get into work.

Nova Training, based in Birmingham, is also setting up centres in Thetford, North Walsham, Dereham and Great Yarmouth and expects them to be running by the end of October providing opportunities to more than 300 people.

It is holding an open day at Lynn’s Duke’s Head Hotel on Saturday, October 17, from 10am-4pm, to recruit people interested in working for the organisation.

Nova has been chosen by the Education Funding Agency (EFA) to support its delivery of high quality provision to young people in Norfolk, based on its experience and successful partnership work to date.

Nova’s implementation of study programmes for 16-18 year olds has been cited as “good practice” by Ofsted.

Through Nova, young people will be able to access vocational qualifications in areas such as the food and beverage industry, manufacturing, horticulture, travel and tourism, ICT, business finance and photo imaging, alongside retail, business administration, hospitality, customer service and vehicle maintenance.

Nova marketing manager Pete Rai said: “This is a chance for talented professionals to join a winning team. Vacancies for teaching staff, recruiters, IAG officers, progression officers, managers and administrators will be created at every centre.”

The location of the Lynn centre will be in Tower Street.
