Lee Jerome appointed national coordinator for Five Nations Network

Lee Jerome, Associate Professor of Education at Middlesex University, has been appointed as one of two national coordinators for England in the Five Nations Network (FNN). The FNN is a network of citizenship educators from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland. It is supported by the Gordon Cook Foundation and the MacRobert Trust and provides a unique forum for educators to meet annually to build networks across the UK and Ireland and learn from the different contexts. In the forthcoming year the network’s activities will focus on exploring the transformational potential of citizenship education.

The network is particularly interested in working with teachers who are undertaking innovative citizenship education with children and young people in primary and secondary schools. For further details visit the Five Nations website or contact Lee Jerome
