Connecting young people with their representation

This lively, interactive assembly introduces students to what UK Parliament is and how it works. More importantly, they’ll learn what it means for their lives as citizens.

Lasting around 30 minutes, it’s perfect either for single year groups or a full-school presentation.

Our outreach officers tailor each session to your students and their curriculum.

We can adjust your session to cater for any accessibility requirements. Let us know when you book.
