Stephen has always argued for more investment in Pembrokeshire’s young people. He worked closely with Haverfordwest Skate Association to get the new skatepark built on time. Over the last 10 years he has helped dozens of local young people make a start in working life through work placements and paid internships. Stephen is passionate about education and is a key voice on local matters.
Stephen attends local schools, colleges and youth groups to provide an overview of politics, his work as an MP and offers lively Q and A sessions. Stephen enjoys hearing about the interests and concerns of young people and likes to encourage them to think about the political system in the UK and democracy.
Education is a very important issue that shapes our society. Stephen is committed to improving educational standards across Pembrokeshire. We are lucky that, in Pembrokeshire, our children have access to a number of high performing schools. However it is important that we still push our schools to continually improve to ensure that we create young people who are ready to fulfil their dream and aspirations whatever they may be.
