Baroness visits college

A MEMBER of the House of Lords is to visit Aldercar Community Language College on Friday in a bid to encourage students to engage more with the political and parliamentary process.

Baroness Warwick will meet with sixth form Law and Public Services students at the Phoenix Post 16 Centre for an hour to talk about the work and role of the House of Lords followed by a question and answer session.

The visit is part of the Lord Speaker’s “Peers in Schools” outreach programme, which has been sending members of the House of Lords into schools and colleges across the country to give talks in support of the citizenship curriculum since 2007.
