The Investment in Future Talent project aims to support up to eight businesses in Aylsham to offer periods of high quality work experience to local people.

Businesses will have access to training in subjects such as management and recruitment practices to better support people currently out of work or wish to learn new skills.

Julian Barnwell of Barnwell Print, the first company to join the project, said: "Having been a major business in Aylsham and supporters of the local community we are extremely proud to be giving local people the chance to get back into the workplace.

"We are looking forward to seeing the training and support that the participants will receive."
