Apprentices from Yorkshire Building Society were given a glimpse of life in the corridors of power when they visited Parliament.

As part of their on-the-job training, 12 apprentices made the trip to London to understand how Parliament works and meet Judith Cummins, MP for Bradford South, and Hilary Benn, MP for Leeds Central.

Hilary Benn MP said: “I was impressed by the enthusiasm and interest of the Yorkshire Building Society apprentices, and it was a pleasure to talk to them about the work of Parliament.

“It is really good to see a major local business investing in apprenticeships in Leeds.”

Katie Wood, Yorkshire Building Society Apprentice, Leeds Briggate Branch, said: “It was a really interesting addition to our training programme as YBS apprentices, which I know will stand me in good stead for the rest of my career.”
