Course description

Government and Politics will enable students to develop a wide range of skills including the ability to comprehend, synthesise and interpret political information; analyse and evaluate political knowledge; identify connections, similarities and differences between the areas studied; select relevant material and construct and communicate arguments clearly and coherently using appropriate political vocabulary.

At AS Level, candidates will develop a broad knowledge and understanding of the political system of the UK. This will be followed by further specialisation at A2, through a number of optional units. These units do not follow prescribed routes and offer teachers the flexibility to select the areas of study that are of greatest interest. At AS, the specification concentrates on People, Politics and Participation as well as Governing Modern Britain. At A2, we will study Political Issues: Ideologies in Action
