Comment on your experience at Hull Training:

(I remember) the friendly, open atmosphere and I enjoyed meeting new people. The staff were approachable and understanding that each individual trainee has different needs.

What are your plans for the future?

As a constituency MP I am keen to maintain and protect long established jobs and businesses whilst ensuring that Hull is an attractive option for new business. I passionately believe that employment & learning opportunities should be readily available and accessible to all.

By working in partnership with Hull Training I believe we are investing in tomorrow’s leaders. Hull Training is an absolute asset to Hull and the region as a whole. Its continued success will play a major role in attracting inward investment into the city by providing employers with readily trained people who have the key skills they need to allow their business growth.
