Introduction to Social Action for Primary Teachers

Free training brought to you by Young Citizens

You’ve got a group of children in your class who are passionate about an issue affecting their local community. They want to make a difference – and you know the potential for learning could be exponential here with the right support. But social action? Where to start?

This short, CPD certified (and free!) online training course will equip you with skills and knowledge about what social action is, and how and why you should introduce it to your primary aged children.

Starting a journey of social action at a young age is critical. The

Habits of Service research by the Jubilee Centre for Character and

Virtues demonstrated the value of starting early and exposing young

people to meaningful opportunities to make a positive contribution.
