Conservatives unveil plans for graduates

Published: Wednesday, 14 April 2010   Category: All Graduate job news

Recent university leavers looking for the latest graduate jobs and courses related to teaching may be interested to hear some pledges made by the Conservative Party in their 2010 general election manifesto.

The party, led by David Cameron, released a bumper manifesto document and launched it at Battersea Power Station in London yesterday (April 13th) including within their pledges a number of commitments for graduates.

If elected for the first time since 1992, the party have said they would try and provide extra university places by offering graduates a voluntary incentive to pay their student loan back early.

In regards to the teaching profession, they stated that they expect new graduates looking for a career in education to have at least a 2:2 degree if they want to qualify for state-funded training.

The party also pledged to "pay the student loan repayments for top maths and science graduates for as long as they remain teachers, by redirecting some of the current teacher training budget".
