Included in this 3-part course, these CPD sessions will help you to build subject knowledge and pedagogy to teach media literacy through citizenship. Each session will address both national curriculum and GCSE requirements.

These CPD sessions will help you to build subject knowledge and pedagogy to teach media literacy through citizenship. 


This is a 3-part CPD course, each session running from 17.00-18.30. During each session, we will consider practical strategies and approaches for teaching about the media and building pupils media literacy and digital literacy skills.
