Graham Stuart, Member of Parliament for Beverley and Holderness, visited East Riding College’s Campus in Beverley to speak to students about a range of political issues and his work as their MP.
East Riding College teaches over six thousand students, including almost four hundred apprentices and over two hundred and fifty higher education students, across their three campuses at Beverley, Bridlington and Hull. They have been rated ‘Good’ by OFSTED for over a decade and they are ranked in the top 15% in the UK for overall student satisfaction.
To mark UK Parliament Week, which runs between 14th-20th November and which is designed to spread the word about how Parliament works, Graham visited the College’s Beverley Campus to talk to students about his work as their MP. The students were brilliant and asked Graham lots of questions on topics ranging from COP27 to the proposed Molescroft Recycling Centre.
After hosting Graham at the College, Joe Dickinson, who is the Student Engagement Officer at East Riding College, said, “It was great for our students to have the opportunity to ask Graham about his work in Parliament and the different ways he is working hard to represent them as their MP. I would like to thank Graham for his time, and for his help in developing our students' knowledge and understanding of local and national politics.”
Following his visit Graham commented, “It was wonderful to speak to the students at East Riding College about my work and why it is important for them to get involved in politics. I enjoyed talking to them and I am sure they will work hard to make a positive difference in our area.”
