The Rt Hon Stephen McPartland

Stephen McPartland, MP for Stevenage said, "WorldSkills 2011 was a fantastic event and was supported by apprentices from MBDA, one of Stevenage's biggest employers. I was delighted to see first hand the enthusiasm and innovation they showed in what was, in my view, one of the best displays of the event."

WorldSkills London 2011 was the largest ever international skills competition and careers event, and more than 200,000 people from the UK visited.  As well as being inspired by the teams taking part, visitors were able to have a go at hundreds of new skills, meet top employers and get specialist careers advice to help make that important next step.
