In the spotlight - Robert Halfon MP, Apprenticeship & Skills Minister
Following the recent round of government reshuffles, GUAC is delighted to welcome Robert Halfon MP as the new Apprenticeship & Skills Minister, Department for Education.
Mr Halfon takes up the charge of Minister of State with responsibility for skills, apprenticeships and higher education.
He lists his interests as apprenticeships, education, social action, community cohesion and technology. He is generally considered to sit to the left of his own party, and cites his support for trade union membership whilst he is also considered by many to be anti “big business”.
GUAC looks forward to engaging with Mr Halfon over the coming months.
