Margot James attended the launch of the ASPIRE programme at the Q3 Academy in Great Barr.
Margot will be participating in the programme by welcoming students to Westminster, holding talks about her route into politics, and answering students’ questions about how to get involved in politics.
The ASPIRE programme will target Year 12 students to ensure that they are work-ready by encouraging the development of problem solving skills, presentation skills, team working and leadership skills. Pupils will also be helped to write CVs and covering letters, and will receive help with interview skills.
Margot said: “I am very pleased that the ASPIRE programme has been launched. This is a fantastic programme, developed by the Black Country Chamber of Commerce and Q3 Academy, that seeks to address employers’ concerns that young people are not sufficiently work-ready. I really am delighted to be involved with the programme on behalf of young people in Stourbridge.”
