What are the future training needs for Norfolk’s land-based businesses?

As you may be aware, following a Structure and Prospects Appraisal process led by the Further Education Commissioner, it has been concluded that Easton College should merge with City College Norwich, and Otley with Suffolk New College.

The land-based sector is a crucial part of the Norfolk Economy and Easton and Otley College is very keen for Norfolk businesses to have their say on the proposed merger and the plans for the future of both the Easton and the Otley Campuses.

The Chair, Mark Pendlington has kindly offered a limited number of places for a small number of Norfolk Chambers member businesses to attend the free consultation lunch at the Norfolk Showground on 23 September:


On behalf of our Board, I would like to extend an invitation, to join me for an informal lunch event at Royal Norfolk Showground on Monday 23rd September, between 12.30pm and 2pm. Jane Townsend, Principal at Easton and Otley College, and Corrienne Peasgood, Principal at City College Norwich will be attending.  This will be an ideal opportunity for us to update you on our plans, and for us to answer any questions you might have.  

If you would like to be included for the consultation lunch, please can you RSVP to Nova Fairbank by email: nova.fairbank@norfolkchamber.co.uk by no later than close of play on Wednesday 18 September 2019.

Alternatively, you can have your say by taking part in the short online consultation.  The consultation document is located at: https://www.eocmerger.co.uk/ and the deadline for responses to be submitted is 01 October 2019.
