Programmes are also being launched in Norwich and King's Lynn. 

The Dereham initiative is being run from Dereham fire station by the youth development department of Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service.

Over the course of the programme, participants will learn a host of workplace and practical skills to help them get into employment or find training opportunities.
