Citizenship is a subject which is at the forefront of our ever changing world and places importance on the education of the whole child. It concentrates on life skills together with social and community cohesion.
The course offers trainees’ opportunities to develop their professional competence, skills and understanding in this area. The philosophy of teaching the subject will be explored and be supported by working with young people during lessons and training days.
Trainees’ will need to have good communication skills and be prepared to teach sensitive subjects through the 11-16 age range. It is inevitable that some aspects of the subject will require further development in skills and knowledge but that will be addressed as part of the training plan throughout the year.
