Psychology and Sociology

Department Information

The department offers a range of post-16 courses for both the level 2 and level 3 curriculum. Each course offers eight timetabled lessons per fortnight and students are expected in addition to work independently beyond the lesson time. Independent work would typically involve research, note-taking, exam practice, revision and on-line assessments. The department also utilises Google Classroom to encourage engagement with both learning and technology.
