May Topic of the Month

Every month, we release an edition of 'Topic of the Month' with the aim of supporting cultural capital and stimulating discussion within the classroom.  Each edition ties a current news event to our qualification content and enables students to see the bigger picture of what they are learning and how it relates to the world around them.  

Each edition includes a link to an article alongside some key discussion questions to encourage thought around the subject.  

Our previous editions can be found on our qualification pages under the 'Topic of the Month' tab.  

Our May edition looks at attitudes towards being single in the Christian Church.
