MP Matt Western learns the value of apprentices

Leamington Editorial 15th Feb, 2024   0

MP MATT Western has been adding some new skills to his CV.

The MP for Warwick and Leamington met with apprentices in parliament and at Leamington College during National Apprenticeship Week to learn about the skills they have been developing.

In parliament, Mr Western hosted an SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders) event with apprentices from the automotive industry, including those doing apprenticeships with local employers such as Jaguar Land Rover.

He also paid a visit to Leamington College to meet with plumbing and hairdressing apprentices and see their courses in action.

Mr Western said: “It is always great to have chance to catch up with apprentices from across a number of sectors and hear firsthand from them about the skills they’re developing and how they’re finding their courses.

“Apprentices are hugely in demand and there are some brilliant courses being offered locally which I really recommend people take a look at.

“Thanks to all at Leamington College for the warm welcome and so many automotive industry apprentices for making the journey to parliament last week.”

National Apprenticeship Week is an annual week-long celebration that aims to highlight and raise awareness of the contributions made by apprentices and their employers and across the country.
