Citizenship education involves not only teaching and learning of relevant topics in the classroom, but also the practical experiences gained through activities in school and wider society that are designed to prepare students for their role as citizens.
Teachers and school heads play a key role in this learning process. The training and support provided to them is therefore central to the effective implementation of citizenship education.
The general objective of this report is to provide a current and comprehensive picture of national policies in the area of citizenship education in schools across Europe, at a moment when increasing demands are being made on education and training systems to promote this area of learning.
