National Curriculum

Microvolunteering can play a key part within national curriculum standards – wherever you are in the world! Using the National Curriculum of England as an example, our Education Pack can be used to develop an understanding of:

Citizenship (KS2: 1a+e, 2h, 4a,b+h, KS3: 2.2+2.3, KS4: 2.2+2.3)

CitizenshipIt will teach pupils to become more aware about themselves as growing and changing individuals with their own experiences and ideas, and as members of their communities. They will learn about the wider world and the interdependence of communities within it. It will enable them to develop their sense of social justice and moral responsibility and begin to understand that their own choices and behaviour can affect local, national or global issues and political and social institutions.

ICT (KS2: 1a, 3a+b, KS3: 1.2+1.4, KS4: 1.1, 1.2+1.4a)

ICTIt will teach confident, creative and productive use of ICT and also the understanding to apply these skills purposefully, safely and responsibly in learning, everyday life and employment. It will enable awareness of rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of people, communities and cultures, and will allow pupils to collaborate and exchange information on a wide scale. It will provide an understanding of the powerful force that ICT can bring change in society.

Geography (KS2: 1a, 3b+c, KS3: 1.2b)

GeographyIt will impart and stimulate an interest in and a sense of wonder about places around the world.

English (KS2: EN1,2+3, KS3: 1.1, 2.3, KS4: 1.1, 2.3)

It will allow pupils to develop skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing that they will need to participate in society and employment. Pupils will learn to express themselves creatively and imaginatively and to communicate with others confidently and effectively via actions like Writing Letters To A Sick Child or Donating Their Knowledge of Word Definitions
