Brussels Beckons

Date Posted: 10/10/2013 | Posted In: Latest news

Aspiring Politics student Katie Weston is off to Brussels at half term to find out what it’s like working for an EU organisation. She will spend a week shadowing prospective Labour MEP Judith Kirton-Darling who currently works for the European Trades Union Confederation.

Katie, who is a community member of the union Unite, is excited but also nervous about the prospect of the trip to Brussels and says: 

‘I’m not quite sure what to expect but it will be a great experience and will really enhance my CV. I am sure I will learn a lot.’

Katie, from Billingham, is in her second year at QE studying A Level Politics, Economics and Sociology. Next year she hopes to go to Hull University to read Politics.
