Global Citizens - Make an Impact!

Citizenship Sessions at Wilberforce House

Global Citizenship led sessions at Wilberforce House

These innovative Global Citizenship sessions at Wilberforce House offer a unique opportunity to investigate modern day slavery, fair trade, debating and campaigning, and rights and responsibilities.

Key Stage 1 (1 hour)
Key Stage 2 (2 hours)

QCA Citizenship Units 1, 2, 5, 7

QCA Geography Units 22, 24

QCA Literacy Y1/2


This fun, yet thought-provoking led session uses role-play, gallery interaction and lively debate to raise awareness of global issues (including modern day slavery), their impact today and how young citizens can make a contribution.


Unfinished Business

Key Stages 3 (2 hours)
Key Stage 4 (2 hours) 

QCA KS3 Citizenship Units 3, 4, 9, 10

What made the Abolitionists campaign so extraordinary? Students reflect upon the fight against slavery 200 years ago, before investigating slavery and human rights issues today. Students identify tactics used by the abolitionists and campaigners today in order to create their own modern day slavery campaign brief.


These led sessions are ideal for schools working towards the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award, YHGSA Global Schools Award or BT Better World Campaign.
