Michael was welcomed to SupaJam in Swanley on Friday.

Founded by David Court and Nick Stillwell, SupaJam supports young people aged 16-19 from across the district of Sevenoaks who have fallen out of formal education.  Currently supporting over 40 young people, the scheme will expand to support 90 in September.

Students work towards the accredited Music Business Diploma, supported by education in life skills and formal English and Maths qualifications.  Seven out of every 10 young people who attend SupaJam move into further education, employment or training when they leave.

Michael spoke to students and tutors and observed lessons and activities.  He was also given the opportunity to try his hand at the music technology used by the students.

Michael said: “SupaJam is doing great things in Swanley.  Its remarkable record is turning lives around and helping young people to meet their potential.  I look forward to working with David and Nick as they expand their ambition even further.”

On this day in his constituency, Michael also met representatives from the Electrical Contractors’ Association and local councillors.
