CPD Certificate for Citizenship: new start date
The start date for the DfES CPD certificate for the teaching of citizenship being offered by the Foundation in partnership with Birkbeck, University of London and the Association for Citizenship Teaching (ACT) will now be April 2007, allowing teachers more time to complete the portfolio. It will now run through to September 2007.Now open for applications, the course is designed for teachers in primary, secondary or post-16 education wanting to develop their professional skills in citizenship. It will be available either by distance learning or via a face-to-face course delivered in Central London at Birkbeck. Thanks to a subsidy from the DfES the course costs £100 for practising teachers. Places are still available but are allocated on a first-come first–served basis so apply now to avoid disappointment.
