Participants spend two days shadowing senior policymakers from Westminster, Brussels or the devolved nations, gaining a unique insight into the day-to-day workings of government and parliament. We will be releasing details of available placements for 2017 in the coming months.

2016 hosts included Julie Girling MEP, and Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, Roseanna Cunningham MSP.
