In-school Training

Parliament's Education Outreach team runs teacher development sessions in schools around the country to help you inspire and engage your students in their political literacy lessons.

 

CPD at Parliament

Join us at the Houses of Parliament for a free one-day seminar or a tailored CPD session. Whether you are a teacher, a trainee or an educational professional, you'll get new ideas for approaching general Citizenship, SMSC and British Values, or more in-depth Government & Politics topics.

CPD Online

Parliament has partnered with FutureLearn, the social learning platform to offer a variety of courses on the work and role of the UK Parliament. Through video, discussion and case studies you can develop your understanding of the work of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, how laws are made and how Parliament is evolving. The courses are great for CPD but are also suitable for older students looking to enhance their understanding of Parliament and Government.
