A BACUP and Rawtenstall Grammar School student spent a week working with Jake Berry MP as part of the school’s work experience scheme.

Andrew Shaw worked in the Rossendale MP’s office, helping Mr Berry with his parliamentary work, including casework, research, and general administration.

Andrew said: “It’s been a very interesting week. I’ve learned lots about local politics and really enjoyed myself.

“Working with Jake has been a great opportunity. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone interested in politics.” Mr Berry said: “Having Andy in the office has been a real pleasure. He’s picked up everything quickly, and I would happily welcome him back.”

Mr Berry has a number of opportunities for work experience placements throughout the year.
