Have your say

Plans to get more young people into work, further education or training have been drawn up by Derbyshire County Council.

Proposals include better advertising for job opportunities, raising awareness of apprenticeships and education, and more independent advice.

Coun Joan Dixon, cabinet member for jobs, economy and transport, said: “We want to build a strong economy and a brighter future for our young people - and that means making sure we have a skilled and confident workforce.”

Around 2,675 unemployed people in Derbyshire are aged 18 to 24.
