News from the Citizenship Foundation: Paying for It programme update

The Citizenship Foundation’s ‘Paying for It’ programme, in partnership with Aviva is hosting five events across England Scotland to engage Year 10 students (14-15 year olds) in the big economic issues within their communities. The events use workshops run by local professionals working on the issues involved to inform students for a final student led debate chaired by their local Member of Parliament. The events conclude the Paying for It programme which places financial professionals from Aviva into citizenship classes to run active learning sessions on the economic and financial elements of the Citizenship Curriculum.
