Sociology A level at Bradford College

Course description

Have you ever wondered why some people do better in school than others in school?

Why do some people get married and have children but others don’t?

Why do we have religion and what are the benefits?

It will help you to understand your own life and the lives of those around you. You will develop a wide set of transferable skills like team-working; verbal communication skills; showing initiative; being able to work in a way that is supportive of equality and diversity in the workplace.
