Introduction to Social Action for Primary Teachers

Thanks to the Pears #iwill Fund, we've created an free one hour online training course on the importance of social action and how to introduce the topic to children. The bite-size activities in this one hour course are designed to introduce you to 'social action' and explain the value and benefit of running community projects with primary aged children. The training content is a mixture of text to read and digest; answering questions about video clips; completing short quizzes; and watching presentations. There are handouts for all key points. Copies of presentations can be downloaded and used again later. What’s more, this course is certified by the CPD Standards Office and validated as contributing to one hour’s CPD.
