    Online CPD


    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.
