Norfolk needs vision, ambition and leadership

January 29, 2021 2:40 PM

Tim Adams commenting on a Norfolk County Council report on the current position of post 16 education across Norfolk has said -

"Lack of post 16 education facilities leaves young people stranded. As an increasing number of training providers collapse and with the number of young people going into apprenticeship falling dramatically during last year this is another area where young people's lives have been hit hard by the Covid pandemic.


Young people need some hope for the post Covid world but for the last 4 years, Norfolk's rate for creating new jobs has fallen year on year and the level of wages are well below regional and national averages. Something new is needed.


Norfolk needs vision, ambition and leadership. Our overall economy was already falling well behind before coronavirus. Norfolk is full of untapped potential and needs an administration at County Hall that is prepared to deal with the issues that help to unlock our potential such as the current excessive travel to learn distances."
