Year ending 30 September 2002
It is essential to offer practical ways of rasing the quality of teaching and learning in citizenship.
Young Citizen’s Passport
The Citizenship edition of our best-selling guide to the law for young people was launched in March at the House of Lords by Cherie Booth QC and students from Thorpe St Andrew School, Norfolk. Thanks to support from the Human Rights Unit and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, we were able to undertake another mass distribution to schools: 30 free copies were sent to all mainstream state secondary schools and sixth form colleges – over 125,000 books.
This year, the Passport spawned equivalents in Serbia and Poland, and we worked with Common Purpose to develop The Law & You, an updated, all-age, online version of our earlier Passport 50-plus.
Based on research conducted for the Gordon Cook Foundation about young people and community action, this pocket-size, colourful book brings together case studies of youth-led projects with useful tips on how to undertake similar challenges.
“It would be a rare young person indeed who read this book and didn’t end up both enthused and better equipped to take a more active role in their community.” —Third Sector

Your Rights and Responsibilities
In 2001/2002 we produced this two-volume set for Key Stage 3 & 4, based on our first two textbook series about the role of the law in the society: Understand the Law and Living with the Law.
