Government and Politics
Few subjects are as relevant to our everyday lives as Government and Politics.
Politics will be a new subject to the majority of students and therefore may be seen it as an opportunity to do something fresh and new, an enriching experience in itself.
Studying Politics will enable students to understand how the political system works at local, national and European levels. Topics covered in the study of Politics include Electoral Systems, Parties and Pressure Groups, and at A2, the various political ideologies that exist.
Studying Government and Politics gives students a real insight into the world in which they live. Students learn how the political decisions that affect our lives are made and who has the power and authority to make those decisions. They also develop valuable analytical and evaluation skills as they debate topical and controversial issues, form their own political opinions and study different ideological viewpoints.
