MP meets apprentices

8.11am - 1st August 2018

HARLOW MP Robert Halfon visited Harlow College to meet apprentices from the college and the National Citizen Service (NCS). 

Mr Halfon discussed the benefits of apprenticeships and was thrilled to hear about the apprentices’ plans for further education or work. 

Young people from the NCS said how the programme had changed their view towards education and that they were now aspired to community-based careers. 

Similarly, the college apprentices spoke of their wish to give something back to the college which had granted the opportunity to gain skills through an apprenticeship. 

Mr Halfon said: "Harlow College is one of this country’s best further education colleges and truly provides the tools that our young people need for the future. 

"I am thrilled to hear so many of their apprentices want to continue to higher level apprenticeships and are inspired to find jobs in relevant sectors." 

He added: "The NCS has helped young people from all kinds of backgrounds to reach the ladder of opportunity. 

"Their progression doesn’t end when the programme does either - many of them wish to progress with their apprenticeship and get the skills they and our country need.”

Health Secretary set to visit hospital

8.07am - 1st August 2018

NEW Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock is to visit Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow.

During Health Questions in the House of Commons, Harlow MP Robert Halfon highlighted the work of staff at the hospital but explained that the deteriorating infrastructure made their day's work so much harder. 

Mr Halfon said: "I'm really pleased to hear the new Health Secretary will be visiting Harlow's hospital. Since becoming Harlow's MP, I have campaigned hard to protect our NHS and Health Ministers have visited regularly. 

"The hospital staff work so hard every single day but their work is made so much harder by the deteriorating infrastructure. 

"With a bid for the capital funding our hospital so desperately needs in place, it's important that the Health Secretary sees the hospital first-hand and meets staff face-to-face."
