SETA - Anne Milton Visit - Taken from Royston Smith MP - March Parliamentary Update.
It was great to welcome the Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills to SETA in Southampton, an organisation that I have been working to support for some time.
The Southampton Engineering and Training Association (SETA) were established in 1969 to train engineering apprentices for local industry and they continue to provide accredited, industry-recognised training to an advanced level here in our city.
Having started my career in the Royal Air Force as an apprentice I know the value of technical qualifications and education, and fully support the Government’s drive to increase access to and support for apprenticeships.
We have come a long way but have more work to do and that is why I thought it was important to bring the Minister to see the brilliant work SETA does.
SETA is exactly the sort of organisation we want to support, they are providing high quality education and are setting young people of all backgrounds up for long successful careers.
