We have had a very busy term!

Just over 2000 students (from 72 schools) took part in the education programme in Parliament Buildings.
MLAs took part in over 50 Q&A sessions where lots of current issues and concerns were discussed.
We also met with over 150 students (from 8 schools) during online sessions with Education Officers and MLAs.
In November, 59 Government and Politics teachers took part in a professional development event – guest speakers included Judith Boyce, a UK Parliament Committee Clerk, and political commentators Dr David McCann and Dr Clare Rice. The talks are available to watch in the video gallery.

The post 16 section of the website has been updated – check out the new version of Snapshots of Devolution and the Year 8-10 section is now available in Irish.

Look out for a new animation on Brexit and Northern Ireland in early 2024.

If you wish to book a visit  for your students to Parliament Buildings or an online session, please email education.service@niassembly.gov.uk

Happy Christmas and best wishes for 2024 from the NI Assembly Education Service team
