The Rt Hon Alok Sharma MP was with our local MP Nus Ghani
Ahead of the annual Hailsham Community College Careers Fair in March, of which Nus has been a champion every year, the COP26 President visited the school to talk to Sixth Form students about his responsibilities, UK’s leading role in keeping climate at the top of the international agenda and about delivering greener future and greener jobs.
It was a fantastic opportunity for the students and the class engaged the President in insightful questions about not only the goals of the COP26 Climate Conference, tackling global warming, and holding other countries to account and act upon their promises, but also about Parliamentary procedures and Ministerial responsibilities.
The pair also visited JLC Group which is a multidisciplined UK engineering company making fully electric vehicles on-site in Lower Dicker near Hailsham.
The emission-free vans are designed for city couriers, airports, seaports, local authorities, distribution centres or warehouses. The vehicles are assembled on-site, providing training packages, jobs and vital experience to young apprentices from local colleges including students from Hailsham Community College.
