Regional events

Regional events take place in different parts of the UK and bring learning about Parliament to your local area.

Regional events

 

A number of regional events take place over the course of the school year, each one focusing on a different age group and a different area of the country. A travel/cover subsidy of up to £150 is available to state schools whose students are attending a regional event - see terms and conditions below.

  • Please check this page regularly for details of forthcoming events.

Primary regional events

Aimed at primary students aged 9-11, these events are designed to give students a chance to meet and engage with a local Member of Parliament and to question them on a range of issues.

They will enable students to participate in informative and interactive workshops about how Parliament works and how to develop their public speaking skills. Students from a range of schools will be involved in a parliamentary-style debate.

The events also provide teachers with the opportunity to learn more about Parliament's Education Service and its free programmes and resources for use with students.

A level regional events

Aimed at post-16 students, typically those studying Government & Politics, these events are designed to give students a chance to engage with parliamentarians from both the House of Commons and House of Lords, and other representatives involved in local politics.

They will develop students' knowledge and understanding of topics covered by the A level syllabus through a series of informative workshops relating to Parliament and politics. Students will be involved in a Question Time style Q&A event with a varied panel.

The events also provide teachers with the opportunity to learn more about Parliament's Education Service and its free programmes and resources for use with students.
