Parliament’s Education Service’s aim is to inform, engage and empower young people to understand, and get involved in Parliament, politics and democracy. They offer year round events including Educational Visits to Parliament.
“In the past year five schools from Walsall South have taken part in this programme: Hydesville Tower School, West Walsall E-ACT Academy, Grace Academy Darlaston, Whitehall Junior Community School and Moorcroft Wood Primary School. I would encourage other schools to book an Educational Visit which provides a wonderful environment for students to learn about Parliament.”
“The Education Visits are free and schools in Walsall South are eligible for a travel subsidy of 50% of costs, up to a maximum of £800. These tours can only be booked directly with the Education Service on the phone: 0207 219 4496. To book an Education Visit tour for between 22 April- 23 July 2014 (NB: Education Programmes will not run 26-30 May 2014) lines open at 08:30am on Friday 10 January 2014. To book an Educational Visit between 2 September-19 December 2014 (Education Programmes will not run 27-31 October 2014) lines open at 08:30am on Friday 2nd May 2014.”
