Criminology is offered in our sixth form as it gives students the opportunities to acquire criminological knowledge and understanding in meaningful contexts, linking this to the criminal justice system and real-life case scenarios.
Each unit within the qualification has an applied purpose; meaning students will learn the knowledge and apply this to authentic case studies. It also requires learners to consider how the use and application of their learning impacts on themselves, other individuals, employers, society and the environment.
We intend to stay abreast of crime within the media and news and encourage our students to do the same. This is why we will use relevant and real-life examples from society, with a focus on UK crime and justice where appropriate. We will include references to other world societies to offer a variety of perspectives regarding crime and deviance.
