Getting youngsters back into work

Gloucestershire youngsters who have been out of work for more than six months can now get extra training.

It is part of a Government scheme to help 18-24 year olds back into work after the recession.

They are being offered training with Working links with courses on jobs in retail, travel, tourism, hospitality and leisure.

Ian Rampton runs the courses and told Heart more about the scheme
