Welcome to the Standing Conference on Teacher Education North-South (SCoTENS) Citizenship website.

SCoTENS supports collaborative research and professional activities North and South. The current contexts in which citizenship is taught within Northern Ireland and the Republic has created an environment where strengthened professional relationships between Citizenship Educators is seen as mutually beneficial. During September 2004, the National University of Ireland, Maynooth and the UNESCO Centre at the School of Education, University of Ulster hosted a conference on Education for Diversity and Citizenship.

A Citizenship Education website, with specific reference to Initial Teacher Education, was identified as a potentially important lever for future collaboration and cooperation by participants attending this conference.
