South Holland MP champions young people who are building the future
Local MP John Hayes has become the new president of Youthbuild UK so he can continue to champion youngsters who are literally building the future.
He has supported Youthbuild since he addressed the 2011 Young Builder of the Year Awards in his role as Minister of State for Further Education, Skills and Lifelong Learning.
Mr Hayes reaffirmed the Government’s commitment to creating opportunities and apprenticeships to redress the levels of unemployment for those aged 16-24 years.
The South Holland and the Deepings MP said: “Too often people are only recognised for their academic achievements. The practical skills young people acquire will improve their lives, change their life chances and help Britain to prosper.”
