As part of the UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador Programme the Education and Engagement Service will be hosting the next residential Teachers’ Institute 1-3 July 2019. Teachers will experience Parliament first hand, and then return to their schools to support understanding of, and increase engagement with, Parliament.
Transport, accommodation and meal costs are covered, and applications are welcome from teachers, school leaders and teacher training providers working with young people aged 5-18.
The course includes:
- Q&A sessions with MPs and Peers
- Talks from subject specialists
- Workshops devoted to key aspects of the work of Parliament
- Opportunities to explore new and exciting teaching ideas
- Tour of the Palace of Westminster
Following the course in July 2018, 100% of teachers involved said they felt confident (29%) or very confident (71%) teaching about Parliament. 100% said they would recommend Teachers’ Institute to their colleagues.
“I have absolutely loved it and have learnt more than any other CPD course – ever! I feel inspired, empowered and totally privileged!” [Jan 2017 delegate]
I would be grateful if you could forward this information to any interested educators, schools and colleges in your constituency, and encourage teachers and school leaders you know to apply.
Application forms are available online at UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador Programme and the closing date is Sunday 21 April 2019.
