Successful bursary to expand across parts of Norfolk

First published on November 28 2011

Teenagers across parts of Norfolk will be able to be mentored by local entrepreneurs after headteachers decided to expand a successful pilot project.

The Enterprise Bursary was launched in March this year by the Norfolk Way charity, set up in 2007 by mid Norfolk MP George Freeman.

It gives non-academic school leavers, aged between 16 and 18, the chance to have a year long work experience placement, financial assistance for travel and personal mentoring.

Currently Dereham Sixth Form College, Northgate High School, in Dereham, and Wymondham College are involved with the bursary.

Three teenagers are already benefiting from the pilot programme, which cost £10,000.
