Jonathan Djanogly: new apprenticeships mean more young people in Huntingdonshire getting the skills they need to succeed

27th March 2015

Jonathan Djanogly has welcomed new figures showing 470 new apprenticeships were started by people in the Huntingdon constituency between August 2014 and January 2015. In total 3,570 new apprenticeships have been started in the Huntingdon constituency since 2010.

This means more young people getting the skills they need to get on in life and make the most of their talents.

Across England over 2.2 million apprenticeships have been started since 2010.

A future Conservative government would go even further, committing to deliver 3 million apprenticeships by 2020, funded by reducing the maximum amount that can be claimed on benefits from £26,000 to £23,000, and limiting young people’s access to housing benefit.

Jonathan Djanogly said:

“These figures are fantastic news. 3,570 new apprenticeships since 2010 means more young people in this constituency getting the skills to succeed and get on in life.

“We are putting apprenticeships at the heart of our long-term economic plan, funding more of them and making sure they are high quality, teaching the skills that businesses need. A future Conservative government would build on the great progress we have already made, committing to deliver 3 million more apprenticeships by 2020 and effectively to end youth unemployment.

“We are giving young people proper training and the prospect of a better future. Millions of young people are getting a good start in life, learning a trade, and knowing the purpose and pride that comes with that.”
