A skills show is hoping to help more young people in Cornwall find a job.

Almost a hundred companies were at the event on Friday at Wadebridge, from Pirate FM to Jamie Oliver's Fifteen.

It let fourteen to twenty-five year olds actually have a go at things like butchery or cooking.

Helen Field is one of the organisers and told Pirate FM: "Start thinking about something they really enjoy, how can I get a job in that? What do I need to do? What are the pathways? Where do I need to go? and we're absolutely adamant that tables, two chairs some pop ups and some leaflets isn't enough.

"There are amazing companies in Cornwall and there are lots of opportunities and a lot of companies are very keen to look at apprenticeships. Some of them say they prefer people to come in on the apprenticeship route so we're very keen to promote that."
