YOUNG people living in and around Ashbourne with UCAS applications or CVs on their minds are urged to volunteer at Derbyshire’s biggest careers event.
Derbyshire County Council is on the look out for enthusiastic and confident 16 to 19 year olds to act as volunteer guides at the Derbyshire Skills Festival, which will be taking place from 2pm until 8pm at Pride Park, Derby on September 18 and 19.
The volunteers will wear a branded t-shirt, help people who are lost, direct people to the many stands and get a genuine volunteering opportunity that will give a boost to their CV or UCAS application.
More than 10,000 young people are expected to attend the festival, to explore their options after finishing their GCSEs.
People attending the sessions will be able to find out about college, sixth form, training and apprenticeship opportunities in the area.
Anyone aged 16 to 19 interested in volunteering at the Derbyshire Skills Festival can find more information and the online application form at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/volunteer
