A combined Humanities course is studied by some learning groups at KS4 in place of discreet GCSE courses in History and Geography. The programme of study is developed through the WJEC suite of Entry Level Awards and is designed to recognise a wide range of quality-assured learner achievements.
The intent is to develop key skills of enquiry, investigation, and critical thinking through a good quality learning experience that is interesting and enjoyable and leads to positive outcomes for candidates working at Entry Level.
The study of Humanities aims to develop students’ sense of place, both locally and globally as well as an understanding of the Geographical concepts of physical and human processes which shape our world. Students will develop understanding and awareness of the world around them today and in the past. They will learn about people in their communities and other communities around the world and how world events shaped history. Students will complete projects to help develop their skills in preparation for the wider world.
Students complete units from the WJEC Entry Pathways Humanities Qualification. There are no formal exams, but students complete coursework and submit evidence to show their learning.
