This week’s guest is Anne Milton the Minister of Skills and Apprenticeship. Anne worked in the NHS for 25 years including in primary care, research and supporting palliative care nurses. After her time in NHS, she decided to enter politics and has worked at the Department of Health and now is a Minister at the Department for Education.



In today’s episode, you will learn about some of the challenges of changing your careers later in your life. What it means to be a woman in UK politics, the importance of exploring politics outside of the major political parties and why it’s important to explore all of your career options outside of the University setting.


I really enjoyed talking to Anne about her career transition, it’s a secret ambition of mine to enter politics at some point in my career too. If you’re interested in Anne’s work in education you can follow her on Twitter @AnneMilton.
