Graham Stuart to host Skills Minister in Beverley this Friday

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

Local MP Graham Stuart will be hosting the Department for Education’s Skills Minister, Matthew Hancock, in Beverley on Friday 11th January.

During the visit to East Yorkshire Graham will be showing the Minister the great work that is being done locally to help prepare young people for success in today’s increasingly complex labour market.

During the day they plan to visit both East Riding College and the Humberside Engineering Training Association (HETA).

Graham said, “Now more than ever it is important that we do all we can to prepare our young people for success in the future.  There are many different pathways to a good career and we must make sure that each student has the skills they need.

“The Government has done a lot of good things to support economic growth and get more young people into work such has expanding apprenticeships, establishing University Technical Colleges and studio schools, and promoting more work experience placements.

“These are just some of the reasons we are seeing the highest numbers in employment in our history. In Beverley and Holderness we have unemployment of 4.1%, well below the national average and far less than in the United States or Europe.

“This is all good news, but there is much more to be done and we can’t be complacent. That is why I will continue to do all I can to press the Government to do more to understand and champion rural areas like ours so that we can create more jobs and eradicate the deficit left behind by Labour.”


Graham Stuart backs event to help local unemployed young people

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart is encouraging young people to take advantage of an event that will help those not in employment, education, or training.

The information event will take place between 11am and 4pm on 4th December at the Choices Centre, Norwood, Beverley.

Local colleges and training providers will be present to give guidance to young people, and the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Youth Support Service will be on hand to offer advice and information. The event is free and refreshments will be provided. Parents and carers are also welcome to attend.

Graham said, “Following on from the success of the recent Beverley Jobs Fair, this event will be a great opportunity for young people in East Yorkshire to find out about the range of options open to them.

“The longer young people spend out of employment, education, or training the harder it is for them to get back on track, so I would urge everyone who needs help or advice to attend.”

Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, is teaming up with Jobcentre Plus to deliver a Jobs Fair in Beverley from 10am – 2pm on Friday 7th September at Memorial Hall on Lairgate in Beverley.

“If you are looking for work, either part-time or full-time, then come along and find out more about how to get the job that is right for you.

“There are some great prospects for those in Beverley and Holderness, which is currently rating better than the national average in terms of unemployment.  Many new opportunities are on the horizon, particularly in the field of renewable energy, and now is the time to step up and engage in the employment market to become part of the workforce of the future.”

The highly successful fair saw unemployed constituents accessing a range of employment and training services under one roof.

Hopefully they have taken a positive step towards getting back into work, or maybe even getting their first job.
