Citizenship GCSE at The Sixth Form College Colchester

Course description

This is a full course which is taught alongside the GCSE Sociology short course. Students will develop the practical and analytical skills to conduct a successful campaign and raise awareness about an issue important to them. Campaigns in previous years have included ‘Kick Racism Out’ of football, animal rights and ‘Help For Heroes’.

In addition to the active citizenship, students will learn about Britishness, multiculturalism, pressure groups, democracy, the law, consumer rights, working conditions and so much more! It’s a really lively, topical course which increases students’ confidence in their own voice and ability to argue a case.

Entry requirements

These one-year courses are open to AS and AFP students and are normally 5 lessons a week. Most of these GCSEs are studied with the objective of entering students for the Foundation or Intermediate tier of the GCSE. Some subjects will enter students at Higher Level and this will be important if you are thinking of taking the subject to AS Level in your second year in College.
