Maggie Throup MP welcomes 12,270 new apprenticeships across Erewash

Maggie Throup, Member of Parliament for Erewash, has welcomed figures showing that 12,270 new apprenticeships have been created in Erewash by the Conservative Government since 2010.

Data also shows that over 5.3 million apprenticeships have been created across England in the same time period. 

Commenting, Maggie said:

“I am delighted that 12,270 new apprenticeships have been created in Erewash since 2010 thanks to successive Conservative Government policy.

“At a time when fewer people are choosing to go to university, apprenticeships are a great way for students to enter the world of work and enable them to gain skills which will help them build a successful career.”

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 introduced T-Levels and established twelve Institutes of Technology. T-Levels provide students with vocational options as rigorous and robust as A-Levels, whilst Institutes of Technology will be the pinnacle of technical training. As collaborations between universities, colleges and, business they will specialise in delivering quality, higher level technical training in STEM subjects, opening the door highly skilled careers
