Taking Citizenship Action

Topic Title: 

Revision

Topic Intent:

This topic matters because students will learn about the ways in which citizens, governments and the media exercise power and influence in a range of local to global situations. Students will contrast representative democracy in the UK with a non-democratic political system and the limits this places on the rights and freedoms of citizens.  This will give you a better understanding of the UK’s place in the world and a student’s role within it as a responsible citizen with the ability to be influential.

This topic is very important in preparing students for life as a well-rounded citizen, aware of their own rights and responsibilities.


It will help students to understand what they can do to be influential and make a positive change in society.

This topic will help students to appreciate the opportunities they have to make their voices heard in society, something which is denied to a large proportion of the world’s citizens.

Topic Intent: 

This topic matters because it helps students to understand what it means to be an active citizen – it is not enough simply to understand the world better, students also need to consider how they can make a positive change to society through your responsible actions.


This topic is very important in preparing students for life as well-rounded citizens, aware of their own rights and responsibilities.  This topic will gives students practical experience of how they can make a difference in tackling inequality or injustice, for example, by raising awareness of an issue affecting their community, the country or the world.

Topic Intent:

Students consolidate their learning from the Citizenship course and practice exam skills.
