Citizenship to stay at Key Stage 4
Citizenship remains a statutory subject at Key Stage Four under the government's recently published outline strategy for 14-19 education.The Citizenship Foundation welcomes Citizenship's inclusion alongside Maths, English, Science, Religious Education and PE in a slimmed down National Curriculum. The essential theme of the proposals is to establish a new coherence and more flexibility from 14, an approach we hope will see statutory Citizenship provision extended to 19. New compulsory 'work-related learning' programmes for all will also be introduced as part of the proposed changes. The Citizenship Foundation's First Friday seminar on 7 February, hosted by the TUC, will focus on the links between work-related learning and citizenship, with speakers from Middlesex University, the Nuffield Foundation, Ealing LEA and Lambeth Education-Business Partnership.
