Louis Sugden, a teacher from Cromwell Community College in Chatteris, has been selected to attend “Teachers’ Institute” at the Houses of Parliament.
Louis was selected from more than 170 applicants to attend the 3 day training event in Parliament which is fully funded by Parliament’s Education Service. Louis will get the opportunity to question the House of Commons Speaker and the Lord Speaker, and hear from parliamentarians of all parties about their work in the Commons and Lords.
Those taking part in Teachers’ Institute become UK Parliament Teacher Ambassadors and go on to teach their pupils about democracy and the Houses of Parliament.
I am delighted that Louis has been selected as a UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador. Teachers have so many opportunities to engage young people with Parliament and democracy and I am sure that the pupils at Cromwell will benefit from Louis’s experience at Teachers’ Institute.
