 Cllr Ossie Johnson, the council’s cabinet member for children and young people’s services, said: “We understand the world of work and training can be daunting, but don’t worry, we are here to help.

“Our One Point advisors can help young people to explore the choices available, assist them in making decisions about their education or career plans, and aid them in overcoming anything which may be holding them back.”
