New guidance for providers of post-16 citizenship programmes
A pack of materials for those interested in offering post-16 citizenship programmes for young people is being distributed free to all secondary schools in England by the QCA.The pack has been developed by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority to offer ideas and practical information for a range of course providers.
A guidance booklet and a substantial collection of case studies help build on young people's experience of pre-16 citizenship education.
"I can see that pre-16 students could also benefit greatly from the material offered here", said Ted Huddleston of the Citizenship Foundation, and author of a number of the pack's case studies. "It exemplifies good, forward-thinking practice, clearly and simply".
The pack is being sent to all secondary schools, colleges, work-based learning providers, youth services, LEAs, Local Learning and Skills Councils and LSDA post-16 projects in England, over the next couple of weeks. It will also go to a wide range of key stakeholders.
