The Association for Citizenship Teaching

The Association for Citizenship Teaching (ACT) provides advice, training, conferences and resources to support the provision of quality Citizenship education.

ACT’s values are embodied in the way we work: we are open, democratic, collaborative and ethical. Equality and justice are at the heart of what we do. We work efficiently to make the best of scarce resources in the interests of members and the wider community. We are inclusive and seek strong and lasting relationships with like-minded organisations.

Our vision is for all young people to be equipped through effective Citizenship Education to become active, informed citizens who can participate in democratic life. The Association for Citizenship Teaching (ACT) is the subject association for Citizenship. It achieves its aim by providing membership services and education programmes while representing teachers and others involved in Citizenship education both across the UK and overseas. ACT provides expert advice, training, conferences and resources to support the provision of quality Citizenship education.

Beyond advocating for the subject, ACT supports subject research, and offers strategic policy advice.
