Teaching resources for schools, colleges, universities and youth groups
Schools and colleges are now teaching more and more about citizenship and the European Union as well as other topics such as the Welsh Baccalaureate module ‘Wales, Europe and the World’ and ESDGC but resources and support can be difficult to find. We offer a large variety of publications on various topics concerning the EU such as EU institutions, how the EU works, languages, climate change, and many more. Most resources are print based but DVDs, CD-ROMs, online and video clips are also available for some topics. There is also a range of posters and wall display materials which can be used in a classroom.
All of the resources are available free of charge to either teachers or students as single copies or in bulk for the whole class. Most of these can be obtained in all 23 official EU languages as well as some in Welsh.
Our catalogue of resources is available for download and can be acquired by means of an order form attached to the catalogue. If there is a topic which is not covered or one you would like more information on, please do not hesitate to contact us at EUROPE DIRECT information centre – Wrexham.
Within the Wrexham Library, EUROPE DIRECT information centre – Wrexham maintains a small library of European books which are available for loan to the general public. These books provide information on topics such as how the EU works, EU Law, EU institutions as well as statistics which may be useful for degree or post graduate studies.
We can assist with PSHE workshops, European Days and European Activity Weeks. These can consist of interactive workshops with a general overview of what the European Union is, to European quizzes with prizes, craft sessions, and other activities involving group work. These workshops aim at increasing knowledge about the EU and learning about aspects of EU citizenship.
All sessions can be tailored to your needs and the age of the pupils. If you would like resources for a lesson or classroom materials we can provide these for you free of charge.
EUROPE DIRECT information centre – Wrexham produces an annual newsletter for schools, which keeps schools up-to-date on new publications, resources and funding available from the EU.
