John Howell MP Supports National Apprenticeship Week

Apprenticeship Week

Across the Henley constituency 570 people started apprenticeships in the academic year 2011-12, and another 210 have started in the first quarter of this academic year.

This comes as the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) has released a forecast that apprenticeships completed over the next decade could contribute productivity gains worth up to £3.4 billion a year to the economy by 2022.

John commented:

“We are investing in apprenticeships to ensure that the country has the skills it needs to compete in the world and people across the Henley constituency are benefitting from this. I know from work that I have done including with the Henley College that apprenticeships are a win for the individual and a win for business.

“National Apprenticeship week provides a great opportunity to celebrate the positive impact that apprenticeships have on individuals, businesses and the economy.”
