Learning for Life and Work (LLW) is a statutory Area of Learning in the Northern Ireland Curriculum and has four components. Taking a European Union perspective, EU4U focuses on one of the four: Local and Global Citizenship.

EU4U encourages pupils to:

  • explore, understand, evaluate and make informed decisions about the workings of the European Union (EU);
  • recognise that the EU influences their lives as individuals and as contributors to society and the economy;
  • understand and investigate those influences;
  • recognise their place in the EU and that they can have a voice in the EU;
  • think critically about how they contribute to the EU; and
  • gain confidence in their role as a member of the EU.
