Post-16 Day for Government and Politics / Modern Studies students

Students will experience a specially tailored tour of the Palace of Westminster. Focusing on the composition, role, functions, relationship and respective powers of Government and Parliament. This also includes a visit to a Select Committee room and Public Bill Committee room to talk about their different scrutiny functions.

This will be followed by an interactive workshop which compliments and consolidates learning on the tour. The aim of the day is to support students in being able to answer in-depth, exam-specific questions about the difference between Parliament and Government; the balance of power and how it can be affected. The workshop will use contemporary examples to bring Parliament to life.

This day assumes some knowledge about the structure and function of Parliament and Government.
