Funding available for citizenship education projects
16 May, 2018
The Five Nations Network has just announced a number of small grants for teachers wanting to complete projects related to citizenship education.
The grants are particularly designed for schools whose citizenship education provision is in the developmental stage. Each grant is worth up to £750.
This year, the Network is particularly interested in projects that address two broad themes. Firstly they encourage applications from initiatives that develop understanding of democracy, human rights and active and global citizenship; and secondly, involve cross-border collaboration between schools in different jurisdictions (England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales)
Any school in the UK and Ireland is eligible to apply – you do not need to be a member of the Five Nations Network. Successful applicants will also have the opportunity to present their project at the annual Five Nations Conference in Glasgow early next year.
Previous examples of funded projects include initiatives to tackle Islamophobia in society, the establishment of a school council, and learning about global food inequality.
