The Catholic Parliamentary and Public Affairs Internship Scheme, which began in 2003, provides eight recently graduated Catholics with intensive experience of political and social action in a spiritual context. Four interns will be placed with Christian MPs at Westminster, one in a parliamentary support role within the Secretariat, two in public policy and social action with CAFOD and CSAN, and one in a media internship with the Catholic Communications Network (CCN)
Full details are on their website at http://faithinpolitics.org.uk – the closing date is February 22.
This is an educational programme that is sponsored by the Catholic Bishop’s Conference and runs from September 2016 to July 2017. Interns receive funding for a part time MA, receive free catered accommodation as well as a small allowance to cover travel (in total the allowance and cost of accommodation are more than equivalent to the London Living Wage). In addition they go on educational visits to Rome and Brussels.
