We are pleased to announce that our new GCSE (9-1) Psychology qualification is accredited for first teaching in 2017.
Our new GCSE (9-1) in Psychology will inspire and engage learners by providing a broad, coherent, satisfying and worthwhile course of study which develops an understanding of the ideas and values that characterise ‘self’ and others. We are enriching and supporting our qualification by working with Time to Change, England's biggest programme to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination.
Assessment in Welsh will not be available for this qualification (J203)
Exciting new partnership – We’ve developed a brand new section on mental health in partnership with Time to Change aimed at raising awareness and reducing stigma and discrimination.
Support and guidance – Our comprehensive support package ensures teachers are equipped to deliver the new qualification with subject specialists just an email or phone call away.
Inspiring an interest in psychology for lifelong learning – Our new specification provides hands on experience of a range of different research methods encouraging active learning and how psychological knowledge and understanding develops over time.
Relevant and contemporary - Enables students to challenge their pre-conceived ideas of the subject through the development of psychological understanding in a range of relevant contexts.
Developing valuable, transferable skills – Students learn how to communicate effectively using appropriate language and become psychologically literate citizens, whilst gaining an insight into how psychological theory can be applied to real world situations.
