Citizenship Studies A Level at Lincoln Castle Academy

Course description

Building upon your previous learning of Citizenship at GCSE level, you will address the relationship between the individual, the law and the state and the nature of identities at 'AS' Level. At 'A2' Level, you will study the principles and characteristics of justice systems, the nature of representative democracy, the role of parliament in the UK and contemporary global citizenship issues. You will be able to use and apply your Citizenship knowledge developed throughout the course to communicate and articulate different views, ideas and perspectives; advocate, negotiate, plan, make decisions and take action on Citizenship issues; select, interpret, analyse and evaluate information and construct reasoned and coherent arguments, make decisions, propose alternative solutions and form conclusions; work with others, using problem solving and critical approaches to the issues, problems and events. Underpinning the course of study is the requirement for you to be actively engaged in a range of Citizenship activities.
