Choices Then & Now

A Creative Approach to British Values and the Prevent Duty Choices Then & Now is an innovative and creative approach to the delivery of the Prevent duty, SMSC, Citizenship, Extremism & Resilience designed for primary, secondary and further education.

Developed by the Peace Museum, Choices Then & Now has a range of resources to support schools in delivery across the curriculum, engaging students in relevant and thought provoking debate.

Choices Then & Now has been identified as a model of Best Practice by the Prevent team at the Home Office and is now being rolled out across the UK.

This cross-curricular project has been trialed with children and teachers in schools, with great success. The resource content and strategies enhance the delivery of SMSC in a way that is: ‘thoughtful and wide ranging’ and ‘enables students to develop their self- knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence’ and encourages ‘respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic process’. (DfE (2014) Promoting Fundamental British Values as part of SMSC)

As a result of a grant from the Armed Forces Community Covenant, we are able to offer free workshops and guided tours of the exhibition to schools within the Bradford District and schools or groups that support members of the Armed Forces Community, from October 2015 to April 2016. This is a fantastic opportunity and one not to be missed.
