On Friday 10th December 2021, we welcomed recently appointed Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Wes Streeting MP (Ilford North) to Beal Sixth Form. Wes spoke very powerfully about resilience, diversity and overcoming barriers to achieve success. He answered a range of questions about his personal faith, inclusion, growing up on a council estate in East London, assisted dying, airstrikes to Syria, Christmas parties, why politics is such a fantastic career pathway and about life both serving Ilford North and working in Westminster.

We thank both Wes and his team for taking time out of his very busy schedule to share his insights and experiences with us at Beal.
