On 19th April, Kwasi welcomed the ‘I Choose Local’ team to Parliament.
I Choose Local is a new digital platform dedicated to helping 16- to 24-year-olds find employment and skills opportunities in Spelthorne. ‘I Choose Local’ was created by a local technology company in collaboration with a group of students from Brooklands College, and is a former finalist of the Spelthorne Business Plan Competition.
Kwasi thoroughly enjoyed meeting the students to discuss the future of employment and to learn about their experience of working on ‘I Choose Local’ and presenting to the Business Plan Competition. It was wonderful to hear about the positive impact this has had on their confidence, communication skills, and plans for the future.
Kwasi has long been passionate about skills and innovation, and he looks forward to following the success of ‘I Choose Local’ and the team behind it.
