TKAT pupil is inspired by work experience with Gillian Keegan MPPosted on: 31st Aug 2022
During the summer, Aoife from TKAT's Chichester High School Sixth Form, had an exciting opportunity to work with Gillian Keegan - MP for Chichester and currently Minister of State for Care at the Department of Health and Social Care.
Aoife said about her experience:
"Spending time in parliament has been such an incredible experience. Having the opportunity to be here, at the centre of political action during such an exciting time, has been completely enthralling.
I feel immensely privileged to have been able to participate in working in Gillian Keegan's office.I have gained so much insight into the work MP’s do for their constituency.
I particularly enjoyed visiting the chambers and listening to the various debates which were amazing to watch.
During my time working for Gillian I was a part of an event hosted for Ukrainian people in the area and their sponsors, this was one of my many highlights and it was wonderful to meet so many new people and to be a part of such a supportive community.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Gillian and her amazing team and I am very thankful to them for having me."
Gillian said: "Aoife was fantastic help in the office and especially at the Chichester Ukrainian Families reception I held for those who've fled the conflict in Ukraine and their host sponsors. I wish her the very best with her continued studies at Chichester High School."
Well done Aoife!
