Can your business help support a Student Growth Sector Competition?

  • Is your business in the Digital, ICT & Creative Growth Sector - can you help?
  • Is your business in the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Sector - can you help?
  • Is your business in the Energy Growth Sector - can you help?

On a series of dates in March 2020, the Norwich Opportunity Area and City Academy Norwich are launching a Growth Sector Competition with year 8 students.  Working in groups they are being challenged to research New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership’s growth areas; then create a poster; and present back to their year group.

The students will have a wide range to choose from, as the NALEP growth areas include:

  • Energy
  • Digital, ICT & Creative
  • Life Sciences
  • Advance Manufacturing
  • Construction & Development
  • Port & Logistics
  • Financial Services & Insurance
  • Visitor Economy
  • Agriculture, Food & Drink

They will be looking at the definition of the sector; the types of companies in Norfolk/Norwich who represent it; the job roles, pay scales, and entry routes etc.  

But they do need some support from the local business community to make this a success.  The Norwich Opportunity Area and City Academy Norwich are looking for business representatives from each of these sectors to support the activity by giving short presentations over the project on their sector and answering any questions the students may have at a school assembly on the following dates:

Thursday 13 February 2020

Thursday 12 March 2020

Thursday 19 March 2020

Assemblies run from 8.45am - 9.05am and they plan to have 2 guest speakers for each, allowing 10 mins for each speaker.  Speakers will then be invited back for the finale (Thursday 26th March – if they are available) to see the posters the students have created and help choose the winner!

Ideally, they are looking for at least one representative from a business in each of the growth areas – can your business spare an hour to take part?  If you are able to help or would like more information, please contact:
