What makes people tick? Why do some people behave the way they do? Why do different things affect your mood and confidence?

The subject develops a set of important transferable skills including critical analysis and research design. You’ll learn about a broad range of subjects, including social and cognitive psychology, child development, and the psychology that lies behind atypical behaviour. As you discover how others think, you’ll also gain an insight into your own psyche and behavioural traits, which is a valuable asset in both your personal and working life. Your A Level Psychology will be a stepping stone to further education, a fulfilling career – and a better future.

You will have a Personal Coach who supports and guides you through the course. You will meet with your coach for group meetings and for personal one to one meetings on a regular basis.
