Civic Literacy Project

Years: Primary
Location: In your school
Duration: varied

The Civic Literacy Project is an exciting school-based academic-led outreach initiative for Primary School students. 

Each individual project is developed on a bespoke basis in conjunction with the participating school. Generally, the project involves a member of staff from the Politics Department visiting the school and leading a class in a group project over a series of weeks on the broad theme of 'citizenship', which encompasses a wide range of topics but has the ultimate aim of encouraging students to understand with world around them and their place as part of a wider society.

The students will receive support and guidance throughout the projects from both academics and current students, and will have the opportunity to visit the University campus for a celebratory event at the end of their project period.
