Citizenship and Financial Education

ACT has created three resources to support Financial education within Citizenship, especially in Key Stage 3. This work was undertaken in collaboration with IfS University College in 2014 and the materials were given to teachers at the 2014 ACT National Conference and subsequently refined following commentary. There are three member-only resources:

1. The Big Picture of Citizenship and Financial education

NC 2014 Resources and materials to support Citizenship - a digest for teachers

This resources digest has been put together by the Expert Group for Citizenship.

The Expert Group for Citizenship comprises teachers and others from the subject community and works together to promote best practice in teaching the revised National Curriculum. The Group is supported by the DFE.

Resources to help you explain all about Citizenship

It can be very challenging to explain to colleagues and others what Citizenship is all about. In fact some head teachers and subject colleagues still believe that Citizenship was axed in the curriculum review. It was not. Citizenship is part of the KS3 and 4 national curriculum and the GCSE remains, as does the A Level. In order to help with clarity, ACT has produced some new style posters that can be downloaded and displayed in the classroom or staff room or used at governors meetings.

New ACT CPD and Training Events 2014

ACT is developing a range of training and CPD courses to help you develop quality Citizenship teaching and provision.

'Assessing Citizenship' is a new one day CPD course being developed by ACT.
