Should every young person be required to take one week's work experience before they leave school?

This debate is the last of five topics chosen by over 250,000 young people from across the UK as a priority in the UK Youth Parliament's 'Make Your Mark' ballot. 

Watch the video and join the debate live on Facebook and Twitter, and then head to the Parliament Week website to share the outcome of your debate.


On Friday 23rd November, Members of Youth Parliament will sit in the House of Commons as part of Parliament Week to debate this and four other selected topics.

To launch our topics we've given 27,000 schools the opportunity to 'Create the Debate' by downloading a debate pack, watching this video, and holding a live classroom debate for and against the motion.

This is YOUR chance to get involved.
