Schools' visits take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays while the Parliament is sitting. These are popular, so book early.
The education service also organises teachers' seminars. Places are limited and the next available modern studies session will be on February 11. If a group of teachers from one authority would like a seminar with a particular focus, special in-service sessions can be arranged, either locally or at the Parliament.
