Digital Surgeries transform the way that young people and politicians interact.
We support schools to run Digital Surgeries, connecting students and politicians using online platforms, such as Skype, Vlogs or Facebook Live. This gives students a rare chance to understand and engage with their elected representatives. The programme helps schools to meet British Values and SMSC requirements in an interactive and engaging way.
To make sure that students have the knowledge, skills and confidence to get the most out of each exchange we provide:
- training and resources for teachers to run pre-surgery workshops;
- in-school assistance for your first surgery;
- support and promotion through our online platform.
Our aim is simple – we want every student to have a meaningful, informed interaction with their local, regional or national politician. We want to foster a generation of young people who are confident, politically literate and able to use their voice.
If your school is interested in finding out more please register your interest below and we will be in touch.
