Each year our conference brings together teachers, initial teacher educators, policy makers and others from each nation to explore and discuss Citizenship and values education.
Our conference is by invitation only to secure a good balance of participants from each jurisdiction and from each constituency group (teachers, initial teacher educators, inspectors, education policy makers, curriculum planners and NGOs). The five nations take it in turns to host the annual event and funding from the Gordon Cook Foundation has enabled these conferences to take place since 2000*. We are pleased that The MacRobert Trust provided funding to support the programme from 2014-17.
For the period 2013-2015, the Strategy Group agreed a focus on the theme of ‘Identity and Citizenship’ and a series of three conferences to explore questions within this theme were developed: Edinburgh , Belfast  and Cardiff .
