"The Citizenship Education Longitudinal Study, conducted by the National Foundation for Education Research (NFER) on behalf of the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), aims to identify, measure and evaluate the extent to which effective practice in citizenship education develops in schools so that such practice can be promoted widely. The study begun in 2001 and will end in 2009.
This summary highlights key research findings from the third annual report of the Citizenship Education Longitudinal Study. It is based upon a sample of 237 schools and 50 colleges and reports the responses of 238 school and college leaders, 876 teachers and college tutors and 6400 students across years 8, 10 and 12. (Students age 13 to 14, 15 to 16 and 17 to 18 respectively) in the academic year 2003-2004.
The report sets out the findings of the second cross-sectional survey of year 8, 10 and 12 students and their teachers and schools, focusing on studentsâ€™experiences,
understandings and views of citizenship education and wider citizenship issues. Its discussion and conclusions focus on findings which support the existing evidence base for citizenship education, moving on to address the findings which add a new dimension to this evidence base. Following a brief consideration of the implications of these combined insights for our understanding of citizenship and citizenship education, it moves on to list key considerations for some of the groups currently
involved in citizenship education at a range of levels.
Above all, this report confirms the importance of ensuring that student experiences of, and attitudes to, citizenship and citizenship education are at the very heart of all the
elements of the Citizenship Education Longitudinal Study. It is vital to the success of the Study that the voice and experiences of the students who are participating is heard
alongside those of teachers and school leaders. After all, this is one of the cornerstones of effective citizenship education".
