This project was awarded funding in March 2019.
Norfolk and Suffolk both host an annual skills and careers event (Norfolk in March and Suffolk in October) led by the respective Agricultural organisations. The duration of the Norfolk event is two days and the Suffolk event is one day. Each event is attended by approx. 5-6,000 youngsters and over 200 businesses; public sector organisations and charities take part. The ambition is that over time, delivery will become more consistent across the counties and at reducing existing cost. It is intended, that from 2019 the two agricultural associations, RNAA and SAA, both not for profit organisations, will organise and deliver the Skills Show events. The East Anglia Skills Initiative will result in both events being aligned and a common operating model put in place for planning and delivery.
