Active Citizenship Education Motivates Young People
Active Citizenship Education Motivates Young People
An innovative citizenship education programme for 16?9 year olds has been praised for its success in motivating young people to play an active role in their communities. A recent evaluation report, based on research by the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), highlights the programme? ?olitical literacy in action?approach and its achievements in inspiring young people to get involved in national and local politics.
The Post-16 Citizenship Development Programme, run by the Learning and Skills Development Agency (LSDA), was set up in 2001 by the Department for Education and Skills as a pilot scheme to discover the best ways of delivering citizenship education at 16 plus.
The NFER report sets out the key features of successful citizenship projects. These are: ?a focus on practical action rather than simply acquiring political knowledge. Activities from the projects cover role-play, music, dance, art, photography, exhibitions, websites, debates and youth parliaments, as well as taught sessions.
