CPD sessions, webinars and conferences during autumn term 2021

We run a series of events throughout the year, led by experienced subject specialists, to support your teaching and planning of citizenship education. Whether you are new to citizenship, a trained specialist or anywhere in-between, ACT is here to support you with authoritative guidance and high quality, updated resources. With schools increasingly making links to the cross-cutting value of citizenship education, it is an exciting time for teachers to get involved with us and benefit from our evolving support and membership offers.

NEW Beyond Black History Month - CPD for teachers

This brand new three part CPD course has been designed to support teachers in promoting race equality in schools and teaching about the ongoing struggle for equality in society through Citizenship education. The course will be certificated for those teachers who complete all three sessions. It is possible to join for only one session if you prefer although it is advised that the two sessions on the curriculum are both attended.
