Having a Say - Suffrage Citizenship Lessons

Faith, Identity and Citizenship

MP6 - young people politically speaking

Sera Shortland, Citizenship Coordinator at Hamilton Community College, talks about MP6, a public speaking political competition she set up to help students articulate their views about controversial issues. This is helpful when teaching Active Citizenship.

Philanthropy in Schools

Sabina Wojtowicz, Philanthropy in Schools Programme Coordinator at the Big Give and Danny Gill, Director of Social Impact at the Dragon School, share their experience of a programme which encourages pupils to explore the work of charities and think about the work they do

Journeys to Citizenship. Exploring the experiences of new citizens in the UK.

This resource was devised by Professor Bridget Byrne* in association with ACT. Professor Byrne carried out interviews with new entrants to the UK in 2017, asking especially about their experiences of becoming a British citizen and why they chose to do this. The case studies are real and raise interesting questions about identity and belonging. They can be used within lessons that explore aspects of Britishness and British values. The case studies also tell of disturbing stories of the process of choosing to become a citizen and reflect on the nature of belonging.
