ACT have developed a range of CPD modules to support the training and development of all those engaged in teaching citizenship. Each module has the same structure with:
- an introductory task
- two main activities and a plenary; and
- a supporting PowerPoint presentation and resources.
The modules are intended to be delivered in a three-hour session or twilight CPD session, but can easily be adapted if you have less time available.
It is recommended that you select a group of modules relevant to your setting and deliver them on a regular basis for example once a term or half term.
