FOLLOWING Boris Johnson’s article on key apprenticeship measures, the Tory Leadership candidate met with Harlow MP’s sixth Parliamentary Apprentice, Dan Swords, in Westminster today.
Writing in his column for The Telegraph, Boris described apprenticeships as “indispensable” and made a commitment that, if elected, he will “properly fund all manner of technical and vocational education – from FE colleges to apprenticeships”.
Rob said: “It’s brilliant that Boris has announced £4.6 billion extra for schools and colleges and, today, he expands on that with apprenticeships, saying they are the best route for young people.
“I was really proud he met my 6th apprentice, Dan Swords.”
Dan Swords said: “It was fantastic to meet Boris earlier today. Like Rob, he is so passionate about apprenticeships and, if chosen as leader, will invigorate skills training in this country, helping to close the deficit.
“I’m so pleased that a potential future Prime Minister recognises that apprentices have futures just as bright as any university graduate and that they represent the very best of our country.”
