Citizenship and History

E-CPD

Author: Jon Nichol. Web Editor: Simon Brown, 24th March 2010

Welcome to this on-line self supported self-study UNIT on History and Citizenship Education. While the UNIT is designed for supported self-study we hope that you will work with a school mentor, and if available, a university tutor [Expert Learning Fellow or ELF].
