"Crewe, like the rest of the UK, has experienced a rise in educational standards and that is something the Conservative government has championed for the past 14 years."

Mr Fletcher added that on the doorstep, early years education and apprenticeships were among the topics people wanted to discuss. 

He said: "The government's ongoing focus on early years education is to ensure that children get the very best start in life, supporting hard-working families with free nursery spaces.

"And on apprenticeships, I know from my own background as a chief financial officer, the way in which they are changing, for the better, the routes into professions, which is something the government has really pushed over the last 14 years, opening up more opportunities."

Following her visit, the education secretary said: "Ben is a fantastic candidate and like me has spent a lot of time in business before coming into politics and having made that journey myself I really find it helps.

"It helps with understanding what we need to do to fix things, how to get things delivered and how to motivate teams.

"So, I am excited somebody of Ben's calibre is willing to come and serve in public service the people of Crewe and Nantwich."
