What’s in the Conservative Party manifesto about careers?

Adventures in Career Development


I’ve been out of the country for the last couple of weeks which means that I’ve been a bit slow off the mark with all things general election. However, I’m pretty excited about this election and am looking forward to playing my part. So I thought that I might try and review the manifestos from a careers point of view.

First up the snappily titled Strong Leadership, A Clear Economic Plan, A Brighter, More Secure Future from the Conservatives.

Weighing in at 84 pages, the Conservatives’ manifesto is a substantial document. I’m going to confine my comments to the bits that directly focus on education and careers (although as I’m often keen to point out everything is really about careers). So scanning through a few pages about reducing the deficit, building rail links and creating a “Northern Powerhouse” (which I think is an acknowledgements of the continuing north/south divide), we arrive on p.17 with a sections…

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for www.3aaa.co.uk where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
