"I connected with Citizenship colleagues from around the country in a way I could not otherwise have done so... The day was a resounding success for me. I came away re-energised, which is no small feat after an NQT year including an Ofsted inspection!" Citizenship Teacher, Conference 2017
A marketplace with a limited number of exhibitor spaces are available for teaching resource providers, publishers, NGOs and organisations working to support Citizenship and democracy education.
