Students from north Norfolk will be able to benefit from a new project connecting young people with the fishing industry.

Net2Plate – a European Fisheries Fund and Marine Management Organisation funded education programme encouraging people into fisheries – will be coming to the area. North Norfolk Fisheries Local Action Group and Great Yarmouth charity Nwes WoW will be joining forces to run the scheme in the hope of maintaining the sustainability and long-term future of the fishing industry.

More than 3,000 secondary and sixth form students aged 11 to 18 will be introduced to project.

They will take part in entrepreneurial and industry-based activities and events.

Jan Cockburn, Nwes Wow education projects manager, said: “This unique programme will help raise awareness of potential careers in the fishing industry and associated supply chain businesses.”

Local fishing employers will be able to run apprenticeships through the scheme.

To find out more or to offer fishing-related apprenticeships or work placements to students, contact Nwes WoW on 03452 122 121.
