A model is using lessons from the catwalk to help school pupils find jobs.

Matt Bates, who has worked as a model for 20 years, is passing on tips from his experience in the fashion industry to prepare teenagers for job interviews.

Now the boss of his own agency, Matt returned to his old school, Benton Park in Rawdon, to start an innovative scheme to help school-leavers get their first step on the career ladder.

Matt runs The Model Education, which staged a series of workshops at the school, with pupils sponsored by local companies, including Yazz Hair.
