This week, myself and my team have been joined by two young people on work experience from Ysgol Plas Mawr. Hana and Seren have been helping the team with a variety of tasks and joining me on visits to meet with constituents. Thank you both for your hard work. I hope you enjoyed the experience as much as we did!
When asked why they wanted to do work experience, Hana and Seren responded.
Hana: "I was keen to come do work experience with Heledd as I was interested in learning more about Politics and wanted to see the kind of things that goes on day to day as a Member of the Senedd. I have really appreciated the schedule of varied activities the staff have put together which has made the experience incredibly enjoyable."
Seren: "I have enjoyed the experience of seeing the more practical side of the political world, and also the opportunity to go on visits to fascinating organisations, such as a sustainable farm in Pontyclun. This work experience has really opened my eyes to the little things that happen in our community that is truly making a positive difference.
As well as this, I've had the opportunity to see all the work that goes on behind the scenes, beyond what we see in the media, which I think has been very valuable!"
