Since becoming MP in 2010, 9,410 new apprenticeships have been created in South Swindon as part of the Conservative Government’s drive to improve skills and productivity in the economy.
Over 5.3 million apprenticeships have been created across England.
Each new apprenticeship helps students to develop their skills, improve their earnings, and establish long and successful careers.
The Conservative Government believes that everyone should have access to the high-quality education and training they need to build a brighter future, whether through study or work.
As well as driving up the number of people boosting their skills through apprenticeships, the Conservative Government’s reforms are also improving the quality of apprenticeships. £2.3 billion of additional funding has been announced for 2023-24 and 2023-25 – with colleges that deliver skills and training getting the most focused support.
Alongside reforms to apprenticeships, the Conservative Government has established twelve Institutes of Technology, including one here in Swindon.
Apprenticeships are fantastic ways for students to enter the world of work, helping them to build new skills and gain vital industry knowledge – all while being paid.
It is brilliant news that 9,410 new apprenticeships have been created in South Swindon since 2010 thanks to successive Conservative governments – as part of the Conservative ‘s drive to improve skills and productivity in our economy.
Each new apprenticeship means another student building the skills and knowledge they need for a long and successful career.
I will continue to work hard to ensure that many more new apprenticeships are created here in South Swindon.
