The Five Nations Network is a unique forum sharing practice in education for citizenship and values in England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Since 2000 the Network has enabled dialogue between teachers, policy makers, curriculum planners, members of the inspectorate, representatives of NGOs and young people from across the UK and Ireland.
The Network is managed by the Association for Citizenship Teaching and is funded by the Gordon Cook Foundation. The work is overseen by a Strategy Group with country representatives from each of the five nations.
The Network is also a Council of Europe Regional Network, and contributes to the objectives and principles of the Council of Europe Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights.
