The A Level Psychology subject at BVIS aims to develop the skills and the necessary conceptual knowledge to engage with current psychological research and debate.
Whilst the emphasis is on the development of psychological skills as well as learning psychological knowledge, the course develop fundamental high level learning abilities that are transferable to any discipline. These include improved academic writing, analytical & evaluative skills, as well as learning how to apply empirical knowledge to practical situations. All of these skills are highly sought after by any university and are fundamental for the workplace.
Naturalistic observation is an important research tool used by psychologists worldwide to collect data. Our A Level Psychology students took on the role of researchers this week to investigate social behaviour around the primary school campus.
