Andy Slaughter MP and RAF Visit Public Services Careers Day

Andy Slaughter, MP for Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush, visited our Uniformed Public Services students today, 28 March. His visit was part of the WLC Public Services Careers Day and he described the role central and local government plays in British democracy. Anil Chauhan from the RAF also visited to talk to students about the wide variety of careers available.

Keen to excite students’ interest in current affairs and to encourage them to vote, our local MP assured them active participation in politics makes real change. He said: “Everything that is happening now from the cost of living crisis, the cost of food and energy, the rise in food banks is to do with political decision-making.”

As to his own role, Mr Slaughter explained that he spends his time as an MP working in Parliament representing his constituents. He helps to sort out the problems local people bring to his surgeries. And he works on serious local issues, such as sewage being released into the Thames.

Later on in the day, RAF Officer Anil Chauhan gave a talk about job opportunities open to our students. Anil described the huge number of roles available from doctor and dentist to musician and linguist or firefighter and police officer – not to mention, careers in flying and maintaining aircraft.

West London College courses in Uniformed Public Services could lead to careers with the emergency services, such as the police, fire and ambulance service, as well as, working in other public sector roles, such as local government.
