PSA Sixth Form 2015 Parliament Week ‘Change your future: understand Parliament’ Workshop

This workshop is aimed at sixth form students looking to better understand Parliament.

It will consist mainly of small group discussions facilitated by politics undergraduate students or academics, to support a discussion on what parliament does and how it could improve in the future.
With the help of a well-known keynote speaker it will aim to promote reflection on the value of Parliament to different subject areas and disciplines.

It will encourage small group discussions about what Parliament should look like in the future and how it should carry out its work. Similar workshops will have taken place in the weeks prior to this event, so the discussions in the PHM will add to more general discussions about the future of parliament within the context of the Parliament Week programme series.
