UK European Youth Parliament (UKEYP) South East Regional Debate

Eight students drawn from our A Level Law and A Level Politics groups participated in UK European Youth Parliament (UKEYP) South East Regional Debate at Bede’s School. They competed against teams from five other schools and colleges across the South East. Our students were allocated the Employment Committee and had to support a resolution to introduce employment rights for gig workers and to critique a resolution which stated whether member states should return tribal artefacts back to their countries of origin.


Josh Frais, who studies A Level Politics conveyed his appreciation of the opportunity:

“The experience allowed me to develop my public speaking skills and critically analyse conflicting arguments.  By participating, I believe it will help me to achieve a place at university, as this will allow me to differentiate my personal statement.”


Gemma Webb, Course Lead for Law, attended the event with the students and was very impressed with their performance:

“The judges of the event were very complimentary about the contributions our students made throughout the debate.  They were equally impressed to see the team make their points so passionately.”


Alice Lass, an A Level Law student enjoyed the experience and stated:

“This event has developed my critical thinking skills, which has helped me to articulate my opinions more effectively and present them with much more confidence.”


We would like to congratulate the whole team who participated in the event. Well done to Libby Johnson, Alice Lass, Pharell Read, Josh Frais, Beth Hennessy, Jacob Whitham, Solomon Udu-Smith, Leo Von Stauffenberg.
