The A level psychology course aims to introduce students to a new way of experiencing the world and a new way of interpreting events and behavior. It aims to take student learning beyond the classroom and start to infiltrate their lives.
Furthermore, the teaching of the course enables students to reach beyond their immediate context, beyond the exam specification and the remit of the syllabus. This has been evidenced by both student panels and parental feedback. In addition, concepts are articulated, and the connections are deep and meaningful with the use of real-life applications, case studies, a broad range of research and synoptic links. This helps to build a stronger schematic framework and assists in the embedding of the core knowledge. The sequencing of the course is also of key significance.
