New Labour Social Policy on Families

Discussion in 'Social sciences' started by anon3767, Nov 8, 2011.

  1. Hi all,

    I've got an interview next week and they've given this brief:

    "prepare a 15 minute micro teach to include a presentation suitable for AS learners introducing a family based social policy of New Labour."

    Does this mean when Tony Blair came into power and the policies labour introduced? E.g. Family tax credit?

    Thanks for any input,

  2. Yeah, I think they are asking you to pick up on one key New Labour initiative and how it relates to the family. You could ask students to consider the following issues:
    What was the aim of the policy?
    How does the policy impact the family?
    Who benefits from the policy?
    Who may object to the policy?
    Can you create a policy that tackles the same aim more effectively?
    In order challenge them, I would refrain from telling students, and ask them to work it out for themselves. Its only 15 minutes so keep it pretty high order with questions like the one above. As some extension work, you could do some around the legalisation of civil partnerships and what that has meant for society and families (diversity etc)
