THE team at Auto Windscreens met MP for Harlow, Robert Halfon, at its Harlow fitting centre last week to showcase its training and apprenticeship scheme.

As Minister of State for Skills, Apprenticeships and Higher Education, Robert met Operations Director Sean Draycott, Apprenticeship Programme Manager Ewan Freeman, other senior members of staff and the Harlow team, including Nathan Arber, a current apprentice.

Robert said: “Auto Windscreens is an incredible apprentice employer and I’m very proud they’re in Harlow. I’ve met Nathan, who’s an outstanding apprentice, he’s doing a brilliant job. The company is helping us build an apprenticeship skills nation, making sure a lot of people can climb the ladder of opportunity, so I want to thank this great company for all that they’re doing.”

Sean Draycott added: “We were very pleased to welcome Robert to our Harlow site. He was very interested in hearing from Nathan, who shared his experiences of his Level 3 Automotive Standard apprenticeship.

“We currently have 38 apprentices working towards becoming fully-fledged technicians across the UK, 10 of whom started only last week. We have plans to recruit another 15 apprentices during our September intake. We were proud to share just how important apprentices are to our business.”

Robert, I hope you asked them if the state of the roads was making them busier

The key question is whether those apprentices get full-time jobs at the end of their training?

I dont get these daily PR photo shoots Halfon goes on. Does he think the people of Harlow are so simple that they will belive that just going somewhere and having a photo taken is what makes a good MP?! I could go to The Range, get a photo with Richard and Bev and put out some generic comment- should I be MP?! what does make a good MP then? well you judge them on their actions. OK, what are Halfons actions? see for yourself- don't let a moany old twit like me tell you Go on here and look for yourself on how Halfon has voted and then think about how Harlow has changed rover the past 14 years. Then decide if he has helped Harlow or not. https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/24784/robert_halfon/harlow Thats before you get into speaking out on racism in his party, attacking those suffering from mental health or just about every other pathetic failure his party has overseen in the last decade and a half....

Dave, around 90% of apprentices are offered permanent employment either during their apprenticeship, or under completion of the final assessment.
