Welcome to NCCL

The National Centre for Citizenship and the Law (NCCL) develops and delivers education programmes in heritage sites across the UK.

NCCL makes every effort to provide a memorable experience to educate through kinaesthetic learning in historic buildings, sites and collections.

The individual’s learning experience is at the heart of the learning journey

NCCL delivers education at heritage sites across the UK including:

  • Galleries of Justice Museum, Nottingham
  • City of Caves, Nottingham
  • The Royal Courts of Justice, London
  • The Civil Justice Centre and Crown Court, Manchester and Bolton Magistrate’s Court
  • and also works in partnership with The Rolls Building, London, The Peoples History Museum, Manchester, and Greater Manchester Police Museum

From February 2017 we will become part of the newly formed National Justice Museum. With access to the UK’s largest collection relating to law, justice, crime and punishment, we will continue to deliver high quality education programmes at legal and heritage sites under our new name ‘National Justice Museum Education’.

All activities are linked to:  KS1, KS2, KS3 National Curriculum, GCSE and A Level syllabi for History, PSHE, Law, Citizenship, English, Religious Studies, Politics, Sociology and many more. We can help to support SMSC provision including current Department for Education guidance in promoting British Values.

Each year NCCL works with over 20,000 students across our learning sites…

Testimonials

"Me and my class mates really understood the pain and brutality of the law."

Y10 student, Ockbrook School

"The Galleries of Justice and NCCL offer an excellent experience for learners, giving the
opportunity to experience the drama of the courtroom and the heritage of the justice system. The power of this learning in improving educational and social outcomes should not be underestimated.
"
