National CPD programme in Citizenship Education
This year’s CPD programme will begin across the nine regions of England in January or February 2010. Delivery will be by Local Authority advisers working in all of the governments' regions, supported by a national database of materials and a distance learning option.The course is free to teachers of citizenship who have NQT status at either primary or secondary level. In addition to the course subsidy a small study bursary is also available. The six month course requires the compilation of a portfolio of evidence to satisfy the DCSF criteria for citizenship teaching plus some reflective essays which provide evidence of Masters level working. The course attracts a professional certificate in Citizenship Teaching and 30 M-level points. The course is ideal for established subject teachers (including PSHE) who now also teach citizenship or for those aspiring to subject leadership.
