ACT has developed a range of guidance and materials to support the revised National Curriculum 2014. The materials include:

Young people to debate foreign affairs policy with MPs

 

Make sure the young people you know have their say!

The next HeadsUp forum - Foreign Affairs…are we making a difference? - is a chance for 11-18 year olds to discuss issues surrounding defence, international aid, Afghanistan, and Britain’s allies, with influential decision-makers.

They will debate with MPs, Peers, MEPs and policy-makers as well as other young people throughout the country.

 

HeadsUp forum live from 7 March – 25 March 2011

The Teachers' Institute at the Houses of Parliament

 

Teachers’ Institute

Houses of Parliament, London

The Teachers’ Institute is a unique professional development opportunity, allowing education professionals & trainees to experience an intensive, informative and unforgettable week based at the Houses of Parliament.

The programme is entirely free of charge, and gives teachers, trainees and others working in education first-hand experience of Parliament in action, an opportunity to share their expertise and knowledge, and time to explore teaching ideas for the classroom.

PARLIAMENT WEEK SUCCESS

 

Parliament Week 2012 was a great success, with young people getting a chance to gain insights of the workings of our democracy and even participate in Parliamentary debate first hand thanks to the work of the UK Youth Parliament.

Here are suggestions for next steps you can take to continue getting young people to engage with the democratic process.

CREATE THE DEBATE

 

Today, Parliament Week, UK Youth Parliament and BBC Three’s Free Speech invite secondary students from across the UK to Create the Debate by holding debates in their classrooms on the top five issues voted on by over 250,000 young people in largest ever youth consultation.

The Make Your Mark campaign asked young people to vote on the most important issues affecting them. The five topics that received the most votes were:

• Make public transport cheaper, better and accessible for all, which was also selected in 2011 as a key issue

PARLIAMENT CITIZENSHIP RESOURCES

 

Lights, Camera, Parliament!

Lights, Camera, Parliament! asks students to answer the question ‘what law would you make?’ in a three minute film, giving young people a creative platform to voice what is important to them.
