It was fantastic to visit Walsall College with the Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills Alex Burghart MP and speak with the students and staff there.
I was impressed by the breadth of courses offered by the College, from apprenticeships and T-levels to work placements with large employers like Balfour Beatty. It was great to listen to the students’ praise for the College’s tutors and their aspirations for the future.
Thanks to all of the students who took part in the discussion.
(And thanks also to Jat Sharma, Richard Brennan and James Morris - members of the senior management team at the college - for the great work you do.)
