A One-Stop-Shop for Political Learning and EnrichmentEffective delivery of British values, Prevent and Employability skills in one neat package
How It Works
A yearly all-encompassing platform which provides your students with the tools necessary to engage in politics and a platform to shout out and be heard. Spearheaded by our Political Literacy Course, the platform includes a polling system, the ability to set up your own student union/council and a blogging set up on which students can publish their own articles directly onto our news site.
Our platform creates a microcosm of how Politics works in the real world right in your school! With a politically literate electorate (via our Political Literacy Course), politicians acting via your very own student union/council and student reporters writing about your school, local area and reporting on what your student union/council does (or doesn’t do!)

Benefit to Schools and Students
Builds Employability Skills, Self-Esteem & Confidence
The Course teaches students the ability to speak in public, debate and present a discussion coherently, helping a student’s self-esteem and confidence. This is then put into practice via the student union/council activities. Both the ability to speak in public and convey a message coherently is incredibly important in today’s world, particularly when it comes to one’s employment prospects.
