Delivered by Emma McIntosh, Petitions and Engagement Officer, House of Commons
What are e-petitions? What can they do? These are the building blocks of a short session with Emma that will help you explore how you and your learners can get more directly involved in politics, even after the votes have been cast this summer.
• Developing digital skills (Thursday 18 May, 10:30-11:00)
Delivered by Kevin Maye, Learning and Development Manager, Good Things Foundation
Can you remember what it was like not to know how to do something you now take for granted?
