My Visit to Bracknell and Wokingham College for Colleges Week

On Friday 21 October I visited Bracknell and Wokingham College.  I was pleased to visit as the College does important work in equipping young people with the skills they need to find interesting and worthwhile jobs in our community.

I was shown the new care suite and facilities to train people for jobs in health and personal social services, looking after people and treating them when they face medical traumas.

I talked to a group of students about the role of an MP and what was happening with the change of Prime Ministers. The students asked a range of questions about national politics, social care and matters relating to mental health.

I am grateful to the College for the invitation and opportunity to see what they do. I wish them every success in helping more young people realise their dreams for the future.

    Shame we do not still have the range and number of Colleges that we had decades ago, when hundreds of thousands of school leavers each year took up proper apprenticeships and vocational training, then you earned while you learn’t, instead of getting into a massive amount of university debt as seems to be the norm today.
    One day of study in a technical college then, gave you as much tuition as you now get at university in a week, and you got 4 days of on the job practical experience as well !
