Gateway to Growth


Gateway to Growth Gateway to Growth

Gateway to Growth is an innovative project designed to unlock the talents of graduates and Norfolk’s thriving small-medium enterprises.

UEA led a successful bid to the Ofs Challenge Competition receiving funding for three years. This project will boost engagement between graduates and Norfolk’s Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) through internships and enhanced skills training linked to Norfolk’s Enterprise hubs.

The University of East Anglia (UEA) are leading on this project with support from New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP); Chamber of Commerce, Norfolk County Council, Norwich City Council, South Norfolk Council, UEA SU, Hethel Innovation Centre, Kings Lynn Innovation Centre, Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor and the St Georges Works.

The tailor-made project will address some of the problems faced by Norwich and Norfolk’s economy and UEA’s graduates, many of whom want to remain in Norfolk after completing their studies but struggle to secure graduate level employment.
