School workshops

The Education Outreach team can help inspire and engage your students in their political literacy lessons by running workshops in schools around the country.

School workshops


Every session is led by our friendly, experienced team of Education Outreach officers, who have a range of specialist knowledge. Workshops are:

  • Free of charge
  • Engage students in political literacy learning activities in class time
  • Last up to half a day
  • Designed for students aged 7 to 18
  • Delivered across the UK
  • Linked to various aspects of the curriculum including Citizenship, Modern Studies, Social Sciences, Humanities and other related subjects.

Activities are delivered as exemplars to help teachers bring Parliament alive in school, and teachers take an active part in these sessions. The Education Outreach team's visit to your school also includes a dedicated teacher training session.

Activity sessions for students can be aimed at whole year groups, assemblies or specialist subject focus days. Topics cover a wide range of themes, ranging from how Parliament works to debating, voting and elections. All sessions focus on active learning and participation.
