YOUNG people from across the North-East are being invited to think about their futures at an event at Sunderland College.

Open to parents and pupils from year-nine upwards, the Find Your Future event takes place at the College's Bede campus on Wednesday, June 19, from 1pm.

The exhibition style open day will include more than 28 different organisations such as top universities, voluntary groups and even an American sports scholarship agency.

Workshops include those on understanding student finance, how to write a personal statement and what to do if you're considering taking a gap year.

Organisations in at the event include Gap Medics, which specialises in overseas placements for budding medical students and Athletes USA, which helps UK students find sports scholarships in America. Closer to home representatives from universities including Sunderland, Newcastle, Northumbria, York St. John, Glasgow and Leeds will be in attendance as will a number of Sunderland based organisations who can help with voluntary placements around the North-East.
