THE Chancellor has praised The Henley College for its provision of apprenticeship training.
George Osborne was responding in the House of Commons to a question from Henley MP John Howell during Treasury Questions on Tuesday.
Mr Howell said: ?The total number of unemployed in my constituency is 219, with youth unemployment at only 36.
?Will my right hon. friend join me in praising institutions such as the Henley College, which is providing excellent apprenticeship training??
Mr Osborne replied: ?It is very good to hear about the success the people in my hon. friend?s constituency have had in finding work over recent years and the clear business confidence that exists in Oxfordshire.
?The Henley College is doing an excellent job in making sure that young people have the skills they need to take the opportunities now out there in the jobs market.
?We will, of course, go on helping such institutions by increasing the number of apprentices we fund in this country, so that we deliver the three million apprenticeships mentioned in our election manifesto.?
