‘Policy School Next Gen’ Cabinet Office Event.

Last week Model Westminster was invited to an event held by Parliament Week and the Cabinet Office, ‘Policy School Next Gen’. The central focus of the day was policy-making. As such, the day was structured to engage students in the practice of ‘good policy making’, the processes which go into implementing policy ideas and improving student’s critical analysis skills when it comes to considering aspects of policy. The sessions were conducted by the Cabinet Office’s Senior Policy team. Policy School Next Gen carried a distinguished panel such as Civil Servants, Ministers, Ben Page (Executive Director of Ipsos MORI), Andrew Haldensby (Director and co-founder of Reform Think Tank) and the Permanent Secretary for the Cabinet Office, Richard Heaton, who all gave their thoughts and insights. The majority of the day was held at Admiralty House, however, the students were later invited to visit 10 Downing Street.

Some opinions of the students who attended the event were as follows:

Francesca Reed remarked: “It was a brilliant experience, and I gained a valuable insight into the work of the civil service and the policy making process. Visiting 10 Downing Street and presenting in the Cabinet Room was a privilege!”

As did Craig Bateman: “It was an amazing and unique experience which I am lucky to have had and enjoyed every part of it.”

Model Westminster would like to thank all of those who could make such an event possible: the students who attended, Parliament Week, the panel, and the Cabinet Office. This event marks the end of Model Westminster’s first year in operation. Thank you all.
