ABSTRACT

Citizenship education plays a important role in developing members of society who are needed for their nations and society. This study aims to promote youth work through analysis of citizenship education curriculum in England. also started from the hypothesis that key features of citizenship education are overlapped with youth work. Therefore, this research analysed the background of citizenship education in terms of social context and the national curriculum for citizenship studies in England since 2002, and tried to suggest the ways for promotion of youth work in Korean context. Citizenship education, in particular, has appeared to build inclusive society as well as to solve out the problems of young people in England. The citizenship education curriculum has been revised three times since 2002 in order to meet the needs of society. In Korea, the government has to develop the national youth policy in every 5 years and the national youth work policy has contributed for the development of youth work field. However youth work activities tends to decline in comparison of youth welfare and youth protection. Fortunately, the 6th National Youth Policy included youth-led participation and youth activities, these are similar to citizenship education curriculum in England.. Further the new competences for the 4th Industrial Revolution era are overlapped with the key features for citizenship education such as mutual respect, cooperation, community involvement. Therefore this study argues that the components of citizenship education can be used for the youth work activities and as s method for youth work in Korea.
