ROBERT Halfon MP visited Stansted Airport to attend the relaunch of their Enterprise & Skills Academy. As Harlow’s MP, Mr Halfon has long championed apprenticeships and worked hard to pair the Academy with Harlow College.
Robert Halfon has strong ties with Harlow College. The College has been ranked as the one highest performing FE colleges in the country and Mr Halfon confirmed at the event that he was pleased to see the College would be providing the expert training to Stansted’s growing number of apprentices.
While there, Robert Halfon met a group of the airport’s own apprentices who were either working in social media or engineering. The apprentices also remarked that earning a wage while studying was vital and one of the main benefits of an apprenticeship.
Robert Halfon said: “We are going to be the skills capital of the East of England. Apprenticeships and skills present a ladder of opportunity for our young people. The work that the airport is doing in providing these opportunities is great for education as a whole and the young people of Harlow and the surrounding area.”
Yeah, about those young people you say you want to help, Bandwagon Bob... You voted for ending financial support for 16-19 year olds in training and further education. And you also voted against spending public cash to create guaranteed jobs for young people who have spent a long time without work. And, as the young are on the whole an open minded bunch, you also voted consistently against equal gay rights. https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/24784/robert_halfon/harlow/votes
