We’ve organised a conference on the theme of ‘People, Power and Protest’
The Association for Citizenship Teaching (ACT) is an education charity and membership association run for teachers by teachers. We work to transform the lives of children and young people through high quality citizenship education.
ACT is excited to be part of UK Parliament Week 2019.
We have organised a CPD conference open to all teachers on the theme of ‘People, Power and Protest’, hosted by the People’s History Museum on Saturday 9 November.
During the day teachers will have the chance to work together to develop resources and teaching ideas stimulated by the museum’s exhibitions and collections, and learn through inputs by guest speakers and in workshops.
By the end of the conference, teachers will have new resources and ideas to try out in their classrooms, different approaches for how to teach power and protest as part of effective citizenship and democracy education in their school curriculum, and a greater understanding of how both ACT and the People’s History Museum can support them in their work.
Participants will also:
• see the permanent collections and the special anniversary Peterloo exhibition at the People’s History Museum;
• develop new ways of working with real sources and artefacts to enhance their teaching;
• meet and network with newly qualified and experienced ACT teachers from across the country;
• get up to date on national education policy and how Citizenship is part of the new Ofsted inspection framework.
The day will be ideal for teachers developing Citizenship, Personal Development, SMSC and the fundamental British Values. Register your place today!
