Teacher CPD at the House of Commons: The Work of an MP

Join us for this annual FREE post-16 Politics and Modern Studies teacher CPD opportunity, co-hosted by the Political Studies Association (PSA). We will be focussing on the role of an MP, and hearing from academics and politicians at Parliament.

The role and influence of MPs and the powers available to them to carry out their functions of representation, legislation, scrutiny and deliberation.

In the morning, you can take an optional tour of the House of Commons and House of Lords which starts at 9.30.

Lunch will be provided from 12:00-13:00.

In the afternoon, we’ll be joined by our guest speakers, Dr Rebecca Wray from the University of Leeds, Dr Andrew Roe-Crines and Danny Bowman from the University of Liverpool, and Anum Qaisar MP.

You will also have the opportunity to watch a debate at the end of the day.
