Apprenticeships, innovation and business

I am working hard with local employers, colleges and schools to ensure that our young people have access to high-quality technical and vocational training. I have supported increased funding for apprenticeships, building on the excellent potential at Fareham College and CEMAST, and am pleased that the government is continuing to back this excellent form of training.

Locally, I am doing my best to bring businesses and young people together, and and have held 2 successful Apprenticeship Fairs in Fareham since my election in 2015. Over 1000 apprentices have commenced since 2015- a great sign that our next generation is being empowered through training and work.
