Work experience students join Wealden MP at Westminster

Ten work experience students from schools across Wealden joined their MP Nus Ghani for a week in Westminster, as well as a day in Crowborough and Forest Row.

The Ghani Ambassador programme brings work experience students up to Westminster to open the inner workings of our political system up to the next generation.

The ten students were able to join Nus for committee discussions, debates in the House of Commons as well as an insight into her role as a Minister in the Department for Transport. In Crowborough and Forest Row they joined Nus for a look at how constituency days work, including advice surgeries.

Schools represented included Uckfield College, Mayfield School, Uplands, Beacon Academy and Hailsham Community College.

Nus Ghani, MP for Wealden, said: “It was a pleasure to host ten wonderful Wealden students in my office for work experience, and share with them my day-to-day job both as the MP for Wealden and as a Minister in the Department for Transport.

“The group were inquisitive and enthusiastic, and hopefully enjoyed their time and learnt a lot about the British political system and how an MP works.

“Parliament can often feel very inaccessible, but I always enjoy working with the next generation of future leaders, and the work experience programme is a great way to open up Parliament to even more people.”
