Information about the Parliamentary Education Centre, how to arrange a school visit, and teaching resources about democracy and Parliament. There are a range of visits and workshops available, mostly including a tour of the Palace of Westminster, access to a learning space with facilitated object handling designed to explore elements of Parliament, a 360 video projection room and documentary. Children can attend workshops to learn how voting works and answering key questions such as “What are elections?” and “What is democracy and representation?” Visits can be tailored for different ages, special educational needs and disabilities.
Back in the classroom, there are a range of education resources that can be delivered by the teacher to explore Parliament and how it works. These include videos, interactive games and handouts.
