Online Politics A Level course overview

Politics A Level covers the following areas:

  • develop knowledge and an informed understanding of contemporary political structures
    and issues in their historical context, both within the United Kingdom (UK) and globally
  • develop a critical awareness of the changing nature of politics and the relationships
    between political ideas, institutions and processes
  • develop knowledge and an informed understanding of the influences and interests which
    have an impact on decisions in government and politics
  • develop knowledge and an informed understanding of the rights and responsibilities of
    individuals and groups
  • develop the ability to critically analyse, interpret and evaluate political information to
    form arguments and make judgments
  • develop an interest in, and engagement with, contemporary politics.

Students will investigate in detail how people and politics interact. They will explore the emergence and development of the UK’s democratic system and the similarities, differences, connections and parallels between direct and indirect democracy. They will focus on the role and scope of political parties that are so central to contemporary politics, including the significance of the manifestos they publish at election time and their relevance to the mandate of the resulting government.
