improved their understanding of the UK political System  

Across our programmes we have a strong track record at consistently equipping students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to participate in the democratic process, enabling students not only to engage with politicians but to be active members of their local communities. 

We strive to make sure that all our programmes work in a school-setting, saving teachers time and aligning with academic outcomes. 

Our use of digital technology  saves schools and politicians time and has improved the quality of engagements between young people and politicians. 

To date, we have worked with a range of politicians from across the political spectrum, including Nicky Morgan MP and Mayor Andy Burnham. Many of our politicians regularly use our programmes to engage with young people.
