A GCSE at grade 3/D or above in GCSE English Language. No previous knowledge of Sociology is required, but you should have a keen interest in understanding society and social issues.
Studying Sociology will help you develop a wide range of analytical and communication skills that will be useful in all areas of employment and further study. This GCSE will lay a solid foundation for you to progress to a wide range of A-Level programmes and lead to many careers including teaching, journalism, social work, health care, law, the police, advertising, marketing and local government.
This course does not contain a specific work experience component but many of the skills you will learn are essential to employability. If needed, our Employability Team can help you find local work placements that will support the course.
You will be expected to supply your own stationery and you may want to purchase a textbook. You may also need to contribute to any courses and visits you take part in, but costs are kept to a minimum.
