We offer a great range of training on Citizenship, Participation and sustainability that contribute to Continuing Professional Development - supporting schools to deliver great opportunities for their pupils to be engaged and part of their community. We have a wide range of products resources and toolkits that could add great value to your school provision.

What is citizenship and participation education?

We want young people to leave school with an understanding of the political, legal and economic functions of society, and with the social and moral awareness to thrive in it. Citizenship education is about enabling people to make their own decisions and to take responsibility for their own lives and their communities. We want to help schools to not simply to teach citizenship but to demonstrate it through the way they operate – offering many levels of participation.
