Free Parliamentary training available for Selby & Ainsty teachers



David Carr, of Parliament’s Education Service, has shared the following program, which I wanted to advertise here for any interested teachers in Selby and Ainsty.



As part of the UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador Programme the Education Service will be hosting a residential Teachers’ Institute 22 – 24 January 2018. Teachers will experience Parliament first hand, and then return to their schools to support understanding of, and increase engagement with, Parliament.

Transport and accommodation 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:

  • Tour of the Palace of Westminster
  • 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

100% of previous delegates strongly recommend the programme:

“The best CPD I have had to date. Every second of every day was useful and I cannot wait to share my excitement with others. I will definitely be sharing with colleagues in our local schools, encouraging them to apply for the next round of training!” [2017 delegate]

“I have absolutely loved it and have learnt more than any other CPD course – ever! I feel inspired, empowered and totally privileged!” [2017 delegate]


Applications forms are available at UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador Programme and the closing date is Sunday 19 November 2017.
