UK Parliament Learn with the Lords: Unique opportunity for students to engage with a member of the House of Lords

Bookings for UK Parliament’s Learn with the Lords sessions are aimed at teachers of students aged 7-18 and include online and in-person options. These popular sessions bring UK Parliament to life for students, helping develop their understanding of the role of the House of Lords by hearing directly from the people who work there. Previous sessions have been delivered by Baroness Grey-Thompson and Lord Hayward. Members from all walks of life take part, including former teachers, scientists, lawyers, cabinet ministers and senior civil servants.

Learn with the Lords sessions take place throughout the school year and are FREE.

Learn with the Lords online is a 40-minute session where students connect with a member of the House of Lords on video call via Microsoft Teams. It’s a great opportunity for school groups (aged 7-18) to put their questions directly to a Lord or Baroness and learn more about the role of the House of Lords. The UK Parliament Education and Engagement team get in touch with schools ahead of the booked session to provide online resources linked to the curriculum which help students prepare their questions. The team can also help to test the tech setup and make sure everything runs smoothly on the day.

Learn with the Lords in school offers teachers the option to have a Lord or Baroness visit their school and interact directly with their students (aged 11-18). In the 2-hour session, students benefit from a curriculum-linked presentation focussing on the role, membership and work of the Lords. Prior to the visit teachers receive educational resources which help their students prepare for the Q&A session which follows the presentation. Plus, there’s time at the end for photos.
