Return to Ask CEdRIC Welcome

Ask CEdRIC aims to provide consumer educators and teachers with all they need to teach the consumer education-related aspects of the Citizenship curriculum.

Ask CEdRIC has been developed by Trading Standards Officers with guidance from PSHE/Citizenship Co-ordinators and teachers to ensure that it is suitable for use in the classroom.

Ask CEdRIC has areas suitable for KS1- 4 and has been designed to fit in with the Citizenship curriculum and the National Consumer Education Partnership framework (www.ncep.org.uk/pages/framework.htm).

The site provides you with ready-made:

  • Teaching Plans
  • Information about how each unit fits into the Citizenship curriculum
  • Teaching Notes
  • Student Worksheets
  • Practical Activities
  • Class and Schools Projects

The site also provides useful links other related sites which provide material and resources that will support teaching in the classroom.

Materials and resources are regularly updated to keep abreast of any changes to legislation, working practice or the Citizenship syllabus.
