“It was a real pleasure to return to Coleg Cambria today and meet with staff and students. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“As a former apprentice, and Coleg Cambria student, I know that vocational training can lead to great careers in world beating industries, and I’m passionate about making sure young people get the support they need to reach their true potential. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Our Welsh Labour Government are investing in the future in Wales, with plans to deliver 100,000 all-age apprenticeships by 2021.   As your Assembly Member, I’ll use my experience and insight to be a strong voice for the young people of Alyn and Deeside, and ensure that they get the support and facilities they need.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

David Jones, Chief Executive of Coleg Cambria, said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“As a local man and an ex-apprentice at the Deeside site of Coleg Cambria we are very proud of Jacks’s academic and professional successes over recent years.  His father Carl was also a great supporter and governor at the college for many years.  We wish Jack every best wish for the forthcoming election, and we are delighted to be welcoming him back to the college to meet staff and students, and to see the recent Deeside 6th and Engineering University Centre partnership developments. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
