As part of the UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador Programme the Education and Engagement Service will be hosting the next residential Teachers’ Institute 21 - 23 January 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.

Application forms are available online at UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador Programme and the closing date is Sunday 4 November 2018.
