YOUTH PARLIAMENT

The UK Youth Parliament provides opportunities for 11-18-year-olds to use their elected voice to bring about social change through meaningful representation and campaigning.

Just one of the campaigns our young people have been involved and voted on:

Last year, over 130,674 young people voted the need to have a Curriculum for Life as the most important issue for them. What does this mean? It means that young people are saying that the education system needs to do a lot more to prepare them for life after school and college!

To raise awareness of the importance of a curriculum for life for all young people.

  • To help schools know what young people need from PSHE.
  • To keep young people at the heart of the changes being made to PSHE.
  • Gain the support of decision-makers on our calls for a curriculum that prepares us for life.
  • Every Quarter we take up to 6 young people to youth parliament, this gives them an understanding of the process that is involved around voting. The young people take time off school but it is classed as an educational visit.
