    A 'Childhood and Society SIGN' lunchtime seminar - run by the Centre for Education Research and Scholarship (CERS).

    Presented by Dr Lee Jerome and Dr Alex Elwick from the Education Department, this seminar will share some of the findings from an evaluation recently conducted in secondary schools where Citizenship teachers taught about the Prevent policy explicitly in the curriculum.

    The Department conducted interviews with staff and students and collected surveys from students to identify the extent to which participants felt the lessons were useful and whether they had any discernible impact.

    They interpret this data in an on-going debate about the appropriate role for teachers in relation to Prevent – as agents of the state exercising a surveillance role and policing young people’s opinions, or as educationalists enabling young people to understand complex issues and explore their own and others’ opinions.
