I have been looking at the ew' citizenship curriculum and wonder how it fits in with the ew' fourth stand on diversity?

the new programmes of study are good and im glad we finally have levels. however it would be far easier for involoved if the levels were in child speak - then the pupils know and understand what is expected. I have just rewritten them into child friendly language and it took ages.

i teach citizenship in a young offenders institution in london. The new curruculum seems to meet some of the learners' needs, however i would like to see a citizenship curriculum that would meet the young offenders needs.i am trying to develop an offender learner programme.i would be very happy to give my contribution to a similar programe.
