Staff and students from across the college attended the event including students studying A Level Government and Politics and Supported Learning students.
One of the questions asked addressed what the candidates would do to improve the employability rate of people with learning difficulties. All of the candidates agreed that this was an issue that needed urgent attention and something that they would all look at addressing if they were elected for Twickenham.
Other topics discussed included Brexit and the effect on business, university fees and the privatisation of the NHS.
Robin Ghurbhurun, CEO & Principal of RuTC commented “this event was a great opportunity for our students to meet the local candidates and ask the questions that are most important to them and their future. It was particularly interesting to hear the candidates positive views on the importance of education and training for young people.”
