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.
