Helping to shape the workforce of the future

Nwes World of Work (WoW) is dedicated to connecting employers and educational establishments.

Forming strong links with businesses and learning providers across Norfolk and Suffolk, Nwes Wow enhances young people’s learning through a range of enterprise education activities.  From Work Related Learning Enterprise Education, STEM activities, and Work Experience placement organisation, we work in partnership with businesses and learning providers to connect employers with educational establishments to help shape the workforce of the future.

Our workshops provide engaging enterprise activities for schools to inspire students.  The workshops aim to develop skills, including team work, communication, and employability.  They improve student motivation, whilst preparing young people for working life.

In November 2011, Nwes WoW became the first organisation in Norfolk to receive the Award in Education Business Excellence (AEBE), the national quality standard for providers of work-related learning services.
