Our Mission

Westminster Skills Centre was founded by a group of people who know from experience how complex Parliament can be, and how little high-quality training exists to explain how politics really works.

Our mission is to provide outstanding development opportunities for people working in and around politics – whether at the national or local level, the private sector, or civil society – on everything they need to be effective in their roles.

We believe that better training and support can improve workplace culture and reduce mental health issues amongst politics professionals, increase diversity and access to political jobs, and improve outcomes for voters and democracy.

Working in politics should be accessible to anyone with the drive to make change, so we’re here to level the playing field
