Suella Fernandes, Fareham MP, said the fair had helped people.

She said: ‘Education and training are absolutely crucial to unlocking opportunities and achieving the satisfaction and security of a fulfilling job.

‘It can be difficult to find a job or the right training if you don’t know what opportunities are out there, if you haven’t been in work for some time, or if you’re looking to change direction.
