As part of Ashton Sixth Form College's ongoing Imagine Your Future Month, Lisa Smart, the Lib Dem Councillor for Bredbury Green & Romiley visited the college to talk to AS Politics groups about local government. Lisa Smart presented her experiences and provided advice and tips on how to get involved in politics as a career. 

The college's budding politicians asked questions on a range of topics, from Brexit and Terrorism through to the Spatial Framework and local education funding. Not only did student display a great level of knowledge they were also inquisitive, connecting their own experiences to real-life politics.

The visit was arranged through Inspiring the Future which connects state schools and colleges with employers and people from the world of work.
