Online resources to beef up the CV

I've just signed up for this e-module on representation in Parliament in June from UK Parliament Learning:

"Join the Political Studies Association and UK Parliament for our online summer seminar exploring theories of representation in the House of Commons

Take part to hear Dr Stephen Bates, Associate Professor, Political Science and International Studies, University of Birmingham, explore different theories of representation and how they work.

Layla Moran MP for Oxford West and Abingdon will discuss what representation looks like in action in the House of Commons.

This event is aimed at UK teachers of 16-18 year olds but is open to all UK teachers. Feel free to explore UK Parliament’s e-learning for teachers ahead of the event."

It's free, and the link is here.

Other resources I've come across recently include a short introductory e-module on Parliament:

"By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • explain some of the the roles of the UK Government
  • explain who forms UK Parliament and its functions
  • outline some of the methods UK Parliament uses to scrutinise government.

The link is here. By the way, it's very basic, so I'm not sure what anyone who had signed up to teach Politics would be doing if they were to learn anything from it. As I say, you could always add it as CPD!!

But there is a link to more useful resources when it comes to this part of teaching the A Level. And these can be found here.
