Distance Learning CPD course in Citizenship Education for 2010 - new delivery framework
This year the Distance Learning CPD course in Citizenship Education will be delivered via the single framework established by the University of Plymouth (UoP).
The Citizenship Foundation is in partnership with the Association for Citizenship Teaching (ACT) and the University of Plymouth (UoP) in providing courses which meet the standards for citizenship teachers established by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF). Courses will be delivered either through local authority providers, in association with higher education institutions, or directly by means of distance learning.
Courses will begin in January and will be free to all primary and secondary teachers of citizenship in England with QTS. The course is ideal for citizenship teachers with some experience but little or no formal training in citizenship. A small study support grant is also available to each applicant.
Details of the course and the new delivery structure can be found on a new dedicated website. Further information and an online registration form can be found at this site.
