Aoife Coles Yr12 - Work Experience with Gillian Keegan MP

A message from Gillian Keegan - MP for Chichester and currently Minister of State for Care at the Department of Health and Social Care (appointed on 16 September 2021)

Aoife ColesA few weeks ago my team and I were joined by Aoife from Chichester High School Sixth Form for work experience.

She 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.
Aoife recently wrote in about her experience.

"Spending these past two weeks 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 feel that 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."
