Alan Mak MP wants local people of all ages and backgrounds to get on in life, not just get by. Alan is working hard to ensure our young people get the best start in life, and everyone has the chance to gain workplace skills.

To achieve this Alan has introduced a number of new initiatives and has visited every secondary school and college in the constituency as well as almost every primary school, helping him to understand the individual needs of Havant schools. 

As a former primary school governor, secondary school careers mentor, Cambridge University Alumni Advisory Board member, and ex-President and Trustee of children’s charity Magic Breakfast, Alan has a deep understanding of the education system and a strong track record of working to improve it.

He supports the Government’s reforms to the school curriculum, which focus on core literacy and numeracy skills; investing in science, engineering and technology; and equipping our young people with the skills to win the global race for success & compete in the modern, knowledge economy.

Locally Alan has engaged with pupils of all ages during his many visits to constituency schools and introduced a number of successful initiatives. These include the Havant Education Leaders’ Forum (HELF), which brings together the headteachers & principals of local secondary schools and colleges on a termly basis, and helps them to share best practice. The forum discusses cross-constituency issues that affect all local schools. In Westminster Alan has campaigned for more funding for Havant's schools since being elected.
