As the daughter of a teacher, I was taught that education is one of the most important ways we have of achieving our ambitions, both in terms of skills and experience for the workplace, and also to lead full and rewarding lives. I will fight for everyone to have this opportunity, regardless of age, background, ability or income.
As your candidate I would campaign to protect and extend funding for vital Flying Start provision in Brackla, Cefn Glas, Wildmill and Cornelly, and look forward to seeing Welsh Labour Government funding for Welsh medium nurseries in Bridgend and Porthcawl rolled out shortly. We are proud Bridgend constituency has one of the highest numbers of students who go onto University. We must ensure that our excellent Bridgend College is supported to educate and train those who choose a more vocational path too.
