‘The future of the apprenticeship advisor post to the Prime Minister remains uncertain, as a spokesperson for Nadhim Zahawi has today told FE Week he is no longer in the role.
Mr Zahawi was appointed to the role in November last year by former PM David Cameron.
This was to support the conservative manifesto pledge to deliver 3m apprenticeship starts by 2020.
Today’s confirmation, by a spokesperson from Mr Zahawi’s constituency office in Stratford, comes after Number 10 refused for several weeks to be drawn on who his replacement would be — or if the post would even continue under the new Prime Ministership of Theresa May.
Mr Zahawi wasn’t the first to serve in the post — his predecessor was Watford MP Richard Harrington — but Mr Cameron was the only PM to have an apprenticeships advisor.’ – FE Week
