The college of West Anglia (CWA) is joining forces with a number of organisations to help teenagers.
They will all be at the Vancouver Quarter, King’s Lynn, to raise awareness of the number of programmes available for those Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET).

“This is particularly focussed on those who are looking to change direction or get back into education or employment.
“The Discovery Centre, for example, offers a range of activities for young people that helps them stay positive and engaged in their lives,” said Julie Chaplin, NEET programme manager at the college.
A consortium of NEET providers, including adult education the Princes Trust, Discovery Centre, Open Road, Connexions, CWA and Actions for Training, will be among those taking part in the event.
There will be information, advice and guidance along with a range of activities, including music by a local band.
