Being an active citizen in society is a vital component of our GCSE Citizenship curriculum and current practice is very much in line with the six principals that define great social action. Social action is already taking place in the classroom up and down the country with our qualifications being available to all centres in England with approximately 10,000 students currently undertaking a programme of social action as part of their GCSE in Citizenship (full or short course) and we aim to strengthen and support this process by:

  • Share and promote evidence of good practice undertaken within schools.
  • Promotion of social action through our GCSE qualification in citizenship and supporting resources.

We’ve just pledged to the #iwill campaign recently – watch this space for updates on our progress

Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 700 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
