Preparing Children and Young People for Citizenship – 24th March 2015 | Muddifords Court Country House, Devon| 09:30-16:00
Citizenship is crucial in building character, exploring British values and developing the soft skills of communication. This also encompasses, interacting appropriately, using initiative and encouraging team work, which are all essential skills for life after school.
During the early years and primary education, citizenship helps children’s social development. This enables them to engage with others, develop understanding of their communities and society, while also providing opportunities for responsible and active citizenship.
In secondary education citizenship is about enabling young people to make their own decisions, taking responsibility for their own lives and their communities. That means we want young people to leave education with an understanding of the political, legal and economic functions of adult society; and with the social and moral awareness to thrive in it.
