Our Education Service programme encourages young people studying the Welsh Baccalaureate to become more aware of current political issues in Wales through debate, considering different points of view and workshop activities. As part of ‘Global Citizenship’, you as young people, will learn and be informed about the role of the Assembly and your responsibilities as citizens of Wales.
Ann, Kate and Dilwyn our Assembly Outreach Education Team offer
– a Skills Workshop focusing on the reliability of different sources of information from Wikipedia to government statements that will help you develop your critical thinking and research skills. We encourage young people to think about what information they would need for their individual investigations before making a decision about where the best place would be to source that information.
– a Citizenship Workshop ‘What is the National Assembly for Wales? During this session we look at: -the difference between the National Assembly and Welsh Government; How decisions are made in the Assembly and how they affect you; How you as young people can get involved in decisions made by the Assembly; How the Assembly holds the Welsh Government to account; Who represents you the young people of Wales in the Assembly.
The workshop activities we offer are also appropriate for PSE Citizenship Lessons so please tell your teachers/lecturers what’s on offer from our Outreach Education Service.
