Who gets the skills post? Two junior ministerial appointments confirmed

Two new junior ministerial appointments have been made to the Department for Education, after it was reported by our sister paper FE Week that Nick Gibb would be staying on.

This evening Robert Goodwill, MP for Scarborough and Whitby and Anne Milton, MP for Guildford, have been appointed.

However, it has yet to be confirmed which will take the apprenticeships and skills brief, after Robert Halfon was dismissed earlier this evening, as reported exclusively by FE Week.

The second vacancy at the DfE is the children’s brief, created by Edward Timpson, who lost his Crewe and Nantwich seat to Labour last week.
