Robert Halfon MP meets apprentices from the NCS and Harlow College

ROBERT Halfon visited Harlow College to meet with apprentices from both the college itself and from the National Citizen Service (NCS). Mr Halfon discussed the benefits of apprenticeships and was thrilled to hear about the apprentices’ future plans for further education or work.

Young people from the NCS has said how the programme had changed their view towards education and now aspired to community-based careers. Similarly, the apprentices from the college spoke of their wish to give something back to the college which had granted the opportunity to gain skills through an apprenticeship.

Robert Halfon said “Harlow College is one of this country’s best further education colleges and truly provides the tools that our young people need for the future. I am thrilled to hear that so many of their apprentices want to continue to higher level apprenticeships and are inspired to find jobs in relevant sectors.

The NCS has helped young people from all kinds of backgrounds to reach the ladder of opportunity. Their progression doesn’t end when the programme does either – many of them wish to progress with their apprenticeship and get the skills they and our country need.”

Jump on that bandwagon, Bob! Just a couple of things though... You have voted against spending money to create guaranteed jobs for young people who have spent a long time unemployed. You've consistently voted for raising tuition fees to a massive £9000. You voted for ending financial support for 16 to 19 year olds in occupational training. Read the hypocrisy and weep... https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/24784/robert_halfon/harlow/votes

What a well deserved acclamation for the pupils, as well as Rob Halfon for the efforts he puts in on behalf of the students of the borough, not all, unfortunately. The students are very well presented and generally, very well mannered,not like the ferals, that plague certain areas of Harlow. These youths are totally ignorant, but due to some deficiencies in their up-bringing, they don't realise they're ignorant, or what manners and respect mean.
