The Electoral Commission and ACT are pleased to offer this introduction to democracy, elections and voting. All you need to know to start teaching this important curriculum area.

In partnership with the Electoral Commission, join our experienced team to discuss how to effectively teach about democracy, voting and elections to young people.

During this session we will discuss: 

  • the use of the Electoral Commission's impartial resources in the classroom 
  • key areas of knowledge of the UK democratic system that will underpin your teaching 
  • how to encourage young people to develop agency to carry out active citizenship projects 
  • the issue of impartiality so you feel confident you are teaching in a way that safeguards the school
  • From our experience of training teachers, we understand that teaching about democracy and elections can often seem challenging and often leaves colleagues feeling they are not equipped with the knowledge they need to support students or answer questions. This session is designed to reassure you that you do have this knowledge or can access it easily from a range of high quality free resources.
