Delivering Skill & Job Opportunities

Milton Keynes has one of the most dynamic economies in the country, with many companies choosing to invest and locate here. For this to continue, we need to make sure that the local workforce has the skills employers need.

So far, the following progress on this Our Plan point has been made:

  • The South Central Institute of Technology has opened and is training its first cohort of students
  • The SkillsHub:MK has been established at Milton Keynes College Identifying and bridging the skills gaps in our local business community
  • The Government piloted vocational T-Levels at Milton Keynes College before rolling them out country-wide

I would like to go to further by:

  • Lobbying for Milton Keynes to get its own university - MK:U
  • Seeing an increase in the figures of apprenticeship uptake in Milton Keynes
  • Support more schools to include STEM in their curriculum
