The A Level in Politics is a subject for students who have an interest in society, current affairs, and the running of the country. This A Level gives you the ability to understand how government works, particularly in the UK and the USA, but also in other countries. Topics studied include participation and voting behaviour, parliament and the role of MPs and the Prime Minister, the different political parties and the role of the EU and the Scottish Parliament. Lectures, group work, presentations and individual research are used to help develop your understanding.
“My ambition is to become a primary school teacher so studying Childcare at South Devon College was a good starting point for me to progress to university. The tutors are really friendly and approachable. I really recommend the course as you gain a perfect balance between practical and theory.”Jed Stevenson
