Anne Milton named new minister for apprenticeships and skills

Anne Milton, MP for Guildford, is the new minister for apprenticeships and skills.

The DfE website notes that Milton “was appointed to the Health Select Committee, serving until December 2006, following her appointment as Shadow Minister for Tourism. In summer 2007 David Cameron appointed her Shadow Minister for Health. Between 2010 and 2012 she served as a Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State (Public Health), Department of Health and was appointed a Government Whip in 2012.”

The ministerial post became vacant after Robert Halfon was sacked earlier in the week, as reported by FE Week.

Mark Dawe, chief executive of the Association of Employment and Learning Providers, said: “We’re delighted that we have a new skills minister who has taken a close interest in the future for young people in her own constituency and we welcome her to her new post.

“We will… ask her to involve providers in the earliest stages of the design of the proposed new National Retraining Scheme.  The expertise and experience of AELP members with their employer links could make a major difference in ensuring that the programme gets off to a successful start.”
