What is Learn with the Lords Online?

Learn with the Lords Online is a live Q&A session where pupils, aged 7-18, can put their questions to a Member of the House of Lords. By engaging with a Lord or Baroness, your students will develop an understanding of the role and function of the House of Lords within the UK Parliament.

  • How did you become a member of the House of Lords?
  • Why are members of the House of Lords appointed?
  • What do members of the House of Lords do?

These are some of the most popular questions members of the House of Lords are asked. What would your students ask? For 30 minutes, your students will get them off the red benches and into your classroom!
