Jessica's Blog: The Last Few Months


It has been a while since I last had the chance to update my blog, a few months in fact, due to a combination of other tasks and days in college.

In less than a month it will mark a year since I first came to Nic’s office and since then I’ve done so much. Not only have I developed my research skills, confidence and phone skills etc. but I’ve attended training courses and even been registered on the Parliamentary Network with my own Parliamentary email. These skills have also helped me in my college work and my extended project.

I am now in my second year of college, with my A-level exams fast approaching (and a trip to Westminster being planned to celebrate the end of exams alongside gaining more experience.) In my spare time I’ve been doing a lot of political reading, focusing on political theories and the European Union to complement both my college work and what has been in the media recently. 

One major event for me recently is university and the choice of where to study. I applied for a degree in politics and have successfully received five offers for this, with one including a year working inside Parliament. I strongly believe that without the skills and experience I have gained in my time in Nic’s office so far, this wouldn’t have occurred.

I have also been considering my future prospects, after completion of my degree. I currently have many ideas flying around though all I’ve managed to decide so far is that I intend to work within politics.
