Parliament in Education – Teacher Training Event


Wednesday 20th September 2017 @ 4pm

Are you keen to introduce children to Parliament and democracy?

Have you considered a trip to London to visit the Palace of Westminster?

Do you know about the opportunities available from the Parliament Education Service?

As members of the STAR Alliance, you are invited to an engaging and informative workshop aimed at answering these questions. Led by James Tucker, from Athelstan primary School and  a member of the 2016 Parliamentary Teachers’ Institute, you will gain a deeper insight into:

  • how Parliament works and ways in which you can introduce democracy to children;
  • how to plan an effective trip to London to visit the Houses of Parliament (including detailed risk assessments, itineraries, travel arrangements and how to secure a workshop at Parliament);
  • the range of resources available from the Parliamentary Education Service to support teaching and learning about Parliament and democracy.

As well as this, you will also be briefed about the ‘Pupils’ Question Time’ event which is being held at Athelstan Community Primary School on 17th November 2017. This interactive Q&A event is open to all school councils across the STAR Alliance and will involve a number of guests with links to Parliament, including a serving member of the House of Lords.
