Citizen Z  is aimed at the current generation of teenagers, with their own needs, interests and aspirations. Young people are living in a world which requires new skills and preparation so that in the future they can take their places as citizens in the world.

Citizen Z  has been written to take this into account …..

… whether inside or outside the classroom, the course goes beyond building strong language skills to developing the whole learner – with an emphasis on critical thinking, values, self-esteem and life skills – ensuring academic and lifelong success.
