Citizenship is a required subject for all pupils at KS3 and KS4. Education for citizenship equips young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in public life. Citizenship encourages them to take an interest in topical and controversial issues and to engage in discussion and debate.


The examples given for KS3 History Votes for Women and KS4 Art and Design Portraits and Identity also play a part in the Citizenship curriculum and many of the topics suggested for tours in the Case Study: Scottish National Portrait Gallery are also ideal for Citizenship.
