Post-16 Citizenship Support

Welcome to the Post-16 Citizenship website

For all those interested in post-16 citizenship education this site contains high quality resources, relevant news and information and details of support for post-16 citizenship available from the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS).

Citizenship e-toolkit

The Citizenship e-toolkit can help you assess the provision of citizenship education across your whole organisation. It will provide you with self-assessment tools which give you feedback on your strengths and areas for improvement. Where you wish to develop your provision, to make the organisation 'citizenship-rich', the e- toolkit supplies information, suggestions and links to other guidance on the Post-16 citizenship website.

What is post-16 citizenship?

Citizenship education gives young people the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in society at local, national and international levels. See Play Your Part: post-16 citizenship guidance (QCDA, 2004) for advice on planning post-16 citizenship provision. For young people aged 16 and over citizenship activities can build on and reinforce the citizenship skills and knowledge they have developed at school as part of the National Curriculum.
