Andrew Bridgen congratulates local schools on getting their pupils work-ready

6th November 2017

Andrew Bridgen welcomes the continued fall in youth unemployment in North West Leicestershire to 1.6%, which is down 80% since 2010, and congratulates local schools on getting their pupils work-ready.

An important measure of educational performance is employability. In Germany, youth unemployment stands at 6.4% and in Japan, 5.1%; in my constituency, it stands at 1.6%, down 80% since 2010. Will my right hon. Friend join me in congratulating schools in my constituency on getting their pupils work ready?

I pay tribute to those schools; they are clearly doing an excellent job making sure that children are not only attaining academically but getting the skills they need to be successful in the workplace. That is not the case in the rest of the UK. In Wales, where Labour is in charge, standards are now falling.
