Training to teach citizenship

As a citizenship teacher, you'll be responsible for teaching an important national curriculum subject in secondary schools. 

Citizenship teachers are needed to ensure students develop knowledge of the complex, changing world in which we live and are fully aware of how they can contribute to shaping our democratic future. You'll be enabling students to increase their knowledge of democracy and government, rights and the law, and how we live together in a multicultural society. 

As they progress within this subject, your students will be able to critique, evaluate, debate and make persuasive arguments. These are important skills that will transfer to future learning, and help them be successful in life and work. 

If you want to be a part of shaping the future and creating informed and active citizens, citizenship teacher training is for you.

And once you’ve qualified, you’ll benefit from a competitive starting salary of at least £22,467, or £28,098 in inner London. You'll also have opportunities for career progression and pay increases.
