MP Harriet Baldwin joined representatives from a Malvern company at Westminster to celebrate apprentices working at the centre of the aerospace, security and defence sector, writes Henri Bujard.
Ms Baldwin met Emilis Tobulevicius who went to school at The Chase and now works as an apprentice at Borwell on the Malvern Hills Science Park.
The sector is estimated to be worth £30billion to the UK economy and there are many small and medium sized businesses in the field in and around Malvern.
The event at Westminster marked the work of 12,000 apprenticeships provided by the UK’s aerospace, defence and security industries.
Harriet said: “I have always been a strong supporter of the apprenticeship programme and wherever I visit I try to encourage local employers to take on an apprentice.
“Borwell is one of the great Malvern cyber valley success stories and growing their business involves growing the skills of the brilliant young people in our area.”
