OBV MP Shadowing Scheme 2017/18

Introducing the next generation of political leaders. Operation Black Vote’s Parliamentary Shadowing Scheme has previously launched the political careers of MPs Helen Grant, Clive Lewis, Marsha de Cordova and Tan Dhesi, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi and mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees.

Now the nation's most successful mentoring scheme is back with the support of the Department for Housing, Communities and Local Government. We asked for the best to apply for the latest round, and we weren’t disappointed. There was huge demand for places. It was almost impossible to chose from the array of BME talent who want to change our to help change our world.

We paired each one with a high-profile politician, and developed a five-star training programmes for individuals to learn in areas such as policy, public speaking, media community activism and lobbying.

Here they are. Remember their names, because we are confident they will go onto great things.
