Firms will 'pitch' to students
TOO many young people are leaving the Forest of Dean to find work, say businesses bosses.
They will give "reverse Dragons' Den" style pitches this week to persuade them to start their careers locally, as plans to keep A-level students in the Dean too were also revealed.
Gloucestershire College is joining forces with Dene Magna School in a bid to build a new sixth form.
Now local group Forest Inspiration has launched an initiative to try and help as well.

It is hosting a careers fair on Thursday.
Held at Vantage Point Conference Centre in Mitcheldean, it will be attended by more than 30 local companies, including The Warranty Group and Simplicity, along with organisations such as JobCentre Plus, Tesco Lydney, Gloucestershire College and the National Careers Service.
The fair will have a noon to 4pm slot focusing on job seekers and school age prospects. That is followed by a 5pm to 7pm slot providing the chance for people who travel outside of the area for work to find out more about careers within the local area.
