Schools

 

Public Concern at Work (PCaW) is the UK’s leading authority on public interest whistleblowing. Recognising that it is important to raise awareness of this subject amongst young people, we have developed teaching materials suitable for the Citizenship curriculum.

Pilot Film Project

We are developing a pilot film project to encourage young people to explore whistleblowing on film and produce 2-3 minute short films. Public Concern at Work will be able to provide some practical assistance, providing an initial workshop to introduce the topic of whistleblowing and some financial assistance for each participating school. We aim to showcase a selection of the films at the end of the school year. Details can be downloaded here.


Citizenship - A Workshop on Whistleblowing

Introduction

Public Concern at Work (PCaW) is the UKs leading authority on public interest whistleblowing. Recognising that it is important to raise awareness of this subject amongst young people, we have developed teaching materials for a workshop on whistleblowing, which we successfully piloted in schools in 2007. By reference to various situations, students are encouraged to discuss

  • the issue of speaking out when the interests of other people are at risk;
  • the reasons why people might choose not to speak up;
  • and our responsibilities towards one another in all areas of life.

The current release of materials is for Key Stage 3. In 2008, having reviewed the feedback we receive on this workshop, we will release materials for Key Stage 4.

You can download these teaching materials for a workshop on whistleblowing for free once you have filled in the information below. We will only use this information to seek feedback, tell you about revised materials and about other relevant information about our work. We will not share this information with any third party.
