The MP for Ealing Central and Acton has welcomed new figures showing 180 apprenticeships were launched in her constituency in just six months.
Ms Bray also welcomed figures from the Office for National Statistics showing youth unemployment has now been slashed by 63.2% with the number having to rely on out-of-work benefits down from 625 in September 2009 to just 230 this February, making Ealing's recovery one of the biggest in London.
She said: "These figures are fantastic news. 1,870 new apprenticeships since 2010 means more young people in Ealing Central & Acton getting the skills to succeed and get on in life.
“We are putting apprenticeships at the heart of our long-term economic plan, funding more of them and making sure they are high quality, teaching the skills that businesses need.
"A future Conservative government would build on the great progress we have already made, committing to deliver three million more apprenticeships by 2020 and effectively to end youth unemployment.
“We are giving young people proper training and the prospect of a better future. Millions of young people are getting a good start in life, learning a trade, and knowing the purpose and pride that comes with that.”
The MP held her annual apprenticeships fair on March 20 at the Ealing Green campus of Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College, with 35 employers and hundreds of pupils who attended.
Across England over 2.2 million apprenticeships have been started since 2010.
