The development of Citizenship as a National Curriculum subject in England is now well documented in sources referenced here and elsewhere.Attention has been given to the possible political motivations behind the introduction of the subject in schools and myriad other aspects surrounding the birth of a subject. Much of the literature implies that teachers are equipped to deliver whatever is required of them, yet there is not a large number of trained professionals in place to deliver the requirements of the Citizenship Order (DfES 1999). However, as this paper demonstrates, Citizenship is not being taught predominantly by teachers trained in the subject. The implications of this are exposed and discussed.
