Sociology at Prendergast - Ladywell Fields College

Course description

All GCSE specifications in Sociology should encourage candidates to: • recognise that their sociological knowledge, understanding and skills help them to develop an understanding of the interrelationships between individuals, groups, institutions and societies; • analyse critically the nature and sources of information and to base reasoned judgements and arguments on evidence; • organise and communicate their knowledge and understanding in different and creative ways, and reach substantiated judgements. All GCSE specifications in Sociology must enable students to: be inspired, moved and changed by following a broad, coherent, satisfying and worthwhile course of study and to reflect on their own experience of the social world to enhance their ability to play informed roles within different social contexts. They should prepare learners to make informed decisions about further learning opportunities and career choices. This specification is designed to enable candidates to focus on their own experience of the social world, whilst encouraging them to build on this framework in order to analyse different aspects of contemporary society in a reflective and innovative way.
