LOCAL MP SUPPORTS HIGH FLYING APPRENTICES

Michael Tomlinson welcomes local apprentices to House of Commons

Apprentices from Dorset were joined by Michael Tomlinson in the House of Commons this week to celebrate the 12,000 apprenticeships provided by the UK’s Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space industries.

There were 100 apprentices from some of Britain’s leading aerospace, defence, security and space companies who attended the ADS Parliamentary Reception.

Organised by the trade organisation ADS, and sponsored by Collins Aerospace, the event recognised the valuable contribution apprentices make to our important, high-skill manufacturing industries, and highlighted the world-leading technologies that many of the apprentices are working to develop.

Michael said "I was delighted to welcome apprentices from Cobham to the House of Commons. The reception was an excellent opportunity to meet young people working towards highly-skilled and rewarding careers and to celebrate the huge talent working in these world-leading sectors. These apprentices are great ambassadors for our local area and the UK’s advanced manufacturing industries.”
