Year 11 at Windermere School – Dream Placement with Copeland MP Trudy Harrison
“I went into Dream Placement looking for leadership opportunities and an insight into working in politics. I found both during my week in the office of Copeland MP Trudy Harrison and her constituency team. I was surprised at the office environment – so friendly but so hard working on behalf of the constituents. I accompanied Trudy on a visit to Furness General Hospital where I also met newly-elected Barrow-in-Furness MP Simon Fell.
“I really enjoyed the atmosphere and felt very much like one of the team. I’d never had an experience like this before – I had done straightforward work experience but my Dream Placement was quite different.
