This afternoon Chuka joined students at Lambeth Academy who are participating in the school’s new Scholars Programme for a seminar on politics, electoral reform and life as an MP.
The programme is aimed at raising the aspirations of some of Lambeth Academy’s brightest students,
It equips them with the confidence and skills to explore and debate a wide range of subjects, as well as allowing them to experience and discover the different higher education and career opportunities open to them.
Speaking of the programme, Chuka said “This programme is such a fantastic idea. It’s vital that we equip Lambeth students with the knowledge and aspiration to help them pursue their full potential in higher education and later on in their careers, and these seminars not only introduce students to a wide range of subjects, ideas and professional vocations, they also develop their confidence and skills such as public speaking, debate and critical thinking.”
