Welcome to the Government and Politics Homepage
Politics is relevant to everybody; our decisions and actions are guided by the political sphere in which we live. Strange then that many people in the UK know relatively little about the Political system that influences their lives to such an extent. Government and Politics gives students a better understanding of the world around them and develops the skills needed to offer a balanced, critical insight into current affairs.
Key Teaching and Learning Aims
To stimulate students' interest in politics and current affairs by delivering a clear, engaging and dynamic curriculum
To enable students to develop a high level of critical thinking skills and be able to interpret, evaluate and comment on the modern political system
To ease the transition of students to work or university by encouraging students to take responsibility for their own learning
