More work prospects

I want to further promote and support local jobs and apprenticeships across Maidstone and the Weald, to help businesses create a truly diverse range of jobs and careers for local people.  I am especially proud of our first Maidstone Apprenticeship fair which was organised by myself and my neighbouring MP Tracey Crouch from Chatham and Aylesford. 

It was attended by Skills Minister Anne Milton along with over 600 students from 16 schools across Maidstone and the Weald and Chatham and Aylesford Parliamentary constituencies.

Apprenticeship Opportunities

The Apprenticeship Diversity Champions Network, which I am proud to Chair, is an employer led, action-focussed group whose members share my belief that someone's future should not be determined by their past.
