The Education Outreach team offers excellent training opportunities for all trainee teachers following PGCE, BEd, ITT, Scottish PGDE and equivalent qualifications. Our free service complements a wide range of subject courses across the UK, enhancing and enriching trainees’ experiences.
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.
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.
As a graduate of Teachers' Institute, you'll become a Teacher Ambassador for Parliament's Education Service. Using free resources provided during Teachers' Institute, you'll be able to help develop your students' and colleagues' understanding of Parliament and democracy and benefit from continuing partnership with Parliament's Education Service.
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.
