Young people from the Derbyshire Dales took steps towards a brighter future when they attended a special open day.

The Ritz Adult Community Education Centre, in Matlock, hosted the Your Big Break event – a joint project organised by Derbyshire Dales District Council and Derbyshire County Council – offered 16 to 24 year olds the opportunity to meet with training providers, register online for apprenticeships and hear from local employers and apprentices.

Richard Tarbatt, a director from local firm Twiggs, spoke at the event giving the employers side.

He said: “As a local employer and member of Business Peak District I was delighted to work with the district council on this event, which I hope will inspire those young people attending to go on and become an apprentice.”
