Cononley teenager Luke Bayer is today bringing the X-Factor to a new local education Internet site.

At 15, Luke is at the age where he will be using the site to find where he might go following his GCSEs.

The South Craven School student reached the last six males in last year's X-Factor talent competition on TV.

The online prospectus allows young people to find out about every local school, college and work-based learning opportunity.

They can find unbiased information about the new diplomas, apprenticeships and all other qualifications.

By 2010 every young person in Bradford district will apply for their courses online via the website. During the launch, planned for today at the University of Bradford, Luke will talk about his experiences on the X-Factor.

Chris Feather and Semi Tadulala, from Bradford Bulls, will present awards to 50 young people from across the district.

These youngsters chose the visual style of the website and tested the navigation design in its first phase of development.

Anne Weston, the prospectus project manager for Bradford, said young people would begin applying online for courses during the next academic year.

She said: "It will open doors they never knew were there and simplify putting in applications and requests for information.

"As it develops you will be able to see progression options through all the levels of learning right up to higher education."
