On 24 December 2020, the Prime Minister announced that the UK would no longer participate in the Erasmus+ programme, and it would be replaced by the Turing Scheme. I was deeply disappointed by this. As a beneficiary of the Erasmus scheme, I know first hand the huge benefits of taking part.
Yesterday (20th April), I led a debate in Westminster Hall on the scope of the Turing Scheme, which will 'replace' the Erasmus+ programme. Read on to find my speech.
Recently, I took part in the latest 'Learn Live' session from UK Parliament's education team. To mark International Women's Day, the subject of the session was 'Women in Parliament'. Our discussion was centred on the experiences, past and present, of women in Parliament. You can watch the 30 minute session above!
The session is aimed at 11-16 year olds.
