Government & Politics

“One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.”   Plato


Government and Politics is an exciting and contemporary course.  Students will be actively engaged in debate and discussion of current political developments.

Lessons will focus upon independent student research, seminars and examination technique.  PowerPoints and the VLE/Twitter are also used to support student learning. There is a trip to the Houses of Parliament and a chance to question visiting guest speakers about their political beliefs.

This course allows students to develop a huge repertoire of skills which are highly valued in numerous professions including: journalism, publishing, public policy, local government and the voluntary sector, as well as within politics itself.
