YOUNGSTERS can learn about about career opportunities at an apprenticeship fair.

North Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Fair will see businesses and training providers gather at North Oxfordshire Academy on Thursday, February 22.

The school in Banbury has organised the event in partnership with Oxfordshire Apprenticeships and schools.

It runs from 6.30pm-8pm and is open to people interested in taking up an apprenticeship.

Among those offering advice will be Emma Farrow, who became a legal apprentice after visiting the same fair several years ago.

She urged youngsters to explore alternative career routes other than university.
