Politics Virtual Series

To book onto this series please email rimmest@edgehill.ac.uk with your name, age & school/college name. 

Launched and overseen by Paula Keaveney, Programme Leader for Politics, this activity allows students to learn about Select Committees, research Body Image in a political context and write a supported report of evidence. This stems from The Women and Equalities Committee’s search for written evidence for their Inquiry into Body Image and may conclude in a written submission to the select committee.

This activity is ideal for students interested in Politics, Sociology, Psychology and related subjects, or those wanting to gain skills in research and report writing. This activity is an opportunity to either learn or revisit an aspect of politics whilst researching an area of public concern, which may lead to publication of their evidence submission. This will be useful for students’ future job or university applications.

The format of the Virtual Series is as follows:

Four weekly newsletter ‘lessons’ which will include commentary from Paula Keaveney and will provide links to further resources:

Week 1 – 4th May

  • The purpose and history of Select Committees
  • Recent Significant Committee Activity
  • Advice on how to research Select Committees

Week 2 – 11th May

  • Political use of Select Committees
  • The Changing Role
  • Select Committee Position in democratic systems
  • International Comparisons & Case Studies

Week 3 – 18th May

  • Body image in a political context
  • Previous Select Committee Initiatives
  • Researching debates and questions using Hansard
  • Researching using political websites

Week 4 – 25th May

  • Writing evidence for Select Committees
  • Style and Formatting Guidance
  • Examples of evidence from previous inquiries
  • Recapping the main objectives

These will be followed by an online discussion forum in early June to allow students to ask any questions or find out any further information. The date for this will be announced in the final newsletter.

Following this, the deadline for drafting advice from Paula will be 19th June, and the official Select Committee Submission Deadline is 26th June. Students or Teachers should make the submissions to the Select Committee themselves, however there is no obligation to do so.
