Every Fellowship is different as they are based around each parliamentarian’s learning objectives. Attachments can focus on areas as broad as understanding the Financial Services or on specific issues, such as, inward investment or sustainability.
For a parliamentarian, they can choose to undertake:
- A Fellowship: consists of 15 days of placements with one or several companies, where there is the opportunity to learn about organisations at every level. From board meetings to active on-the-job visits, Fellowships provide dynamic opportunities to grasp the issues facing the UK economy
- An Associate Fellowship: consists of five days of placements over the course of a year and offers parliamentarians an overview of a key business sector or issue of their choice. The programme can range from an introduction to a key sector such as financial services or energy to an in-depth look at a key business issue or individual organisation. It can also count towards full Fellowship of the IPT
For industry, a Fellowship is an opportunity to engage UK legislators with a direct interest in your business. An attachment can be as long or as short as you choose and provides the opportunity to support the parliamentary process through demonstrating your operating environment, challenges and successes.
