Government debates came to life for a group of City of Wolverhampton College students who enjoyed a behind the scenes peak into the workings of Parliament.
The group of 15 youngsters, who are all studying History and Politics, spent a day touring the Houses of Parliament to put their classroom learning into context.
The group were able to listen to debates in both the House of Lords and House of Commons, and took part in a work shop on electoral systems and voting.
Sophie Moseley, age 18, said: “The whole day was a once in a lifetime opportunity. The Houses of Parliament were interesting and experiencing it with classmates made it even more fun.
“Seeing the House of Commons and House of Lords was something not many people get to see. The debates were fascinating and really opened my eyes to the working world of politics.”
Sally Slater added: “This was a great way to bring learning alive and maybe even fires ambition for a career in politics!”
