Recently our apprentices enjoyed a tour of the Houses of Commons and Lords which was entertaining as well as historical and informed strong debate on the ethics and political relationships within the policy profession and complemented their masterclass-based understanding from the Policy Officer Higher Apprenticeship programme.
The 90 minute tour led apprentices through the Commons and the Lords Chambers, following in the footsteps of the HM the Queen at the State Opening of Parliament and inspiring them with the almost 1,000 year old Westminster Hall.
“It was brilliant to see our learners engaged in truly off the job learning which will shape their views and the way they do their jobs for the rest of their careers. They will be able to reflect upon and demonstrate the influence of these learning experiences in their daily roles. I look forward to the next #ExcellentOrganisations Field Visit.”
