Government and Politics A-Level Looks Set To Continue

On the afternoon of Friday 30th January, 2015, the PSA convened a meeting of Government and Politics A-level teachers in London with representatives from all the main awarding bodies to discuss A-level reform.  A news release of this meeting can be viewed online here.

Education Managers from Edexcel, OCR and AQA all outlined their commitment to continue to offer Government and Politics at A-level and will begin redrafting a new course specification to meet the Government’s A-level reform demands.

The slides from the presentations can be downloaded via the PSA's website here. A video clip of the presentations made by the awarding bodies can be viewed online via the PSA’s YouTube channel

Issue remains high on the PSA's schools' agenda

Whilst the PSA welcomes the commitment outlined by key awarding bodies to continue to offer Government and Politics at A-level and to further enhance the appeal of the subject, the issue of reforming the Government and Politics A-level remains high on the PSA's schools' agenda.

The subject is a valued and important element of sixth form study and the Association will continue to play an important role to help facilitate dialogue with the main awarding bodies around new course content and also to champion the subject to Government and Ofqual.

All of the PSA's work surrounding the issue of Government and Politics A-level reform can be found online here.
