Teens should check out conference

YOUNG people considering careers in the countryside should check out the National Sixth Form Conference at Harper Adams University College in July.

The event, aimed at 16 and 17-year-olds, will give youngsters an insight into Higher Education courses and land-based careers.

It also offers would-be students a glimpse of the residential and social aspects of college life, offering overnight accommodation at the Shropshire campus and featuring such talks as Financing Your Studies.

Details of the conference, running on July 8-9, are available on 01952-815290.
