UK Parliament’s Education Centre has been awarded the Sandford Award for Heritage Education, as it prepares to welcome school groups back this autumn.
Opened in 2015, the Education Centre provides students with a unique learning experience, with each visit including a tour of the Palace of Westminster – a World Heritage Site. Sessions are fun and interactive and directly integrated with the UK’s four curriculums, tailored to the age and attainment of different age groups.
