Edexcel GCSE Citizenship Studies (2016)
Here, you'll find everything you need to prepare for GCSE Citizenship Studies from 2016 (first assessment 2018), including our accredited Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Citizenship Studies specification and sample assessment materials.
Developing positive, proactive citizens
Students will have free choice of their citizenship activity so they can choose actions that they care about. Enquiry questions at the start of each theme engage students with what it means to be an active citizen and the role of citizenship in relation to current issues that impact on modern society.
Our qualification is organised around familiar key issues and debates with clear guidance as to what content needs to be covered. For continuity we have kept and built on existing content such as diversity, human rights, civil and criminal law, parliamentary democracy and actions citizens take to influence decisions locally, nationally and globally.
Our local to global approach enables students to build on their KS3 knowledge of core concepts and how citizenship impacts on their lives before they are introduced to the bigger picture.
Our assessments are designed to be accessible for all students, using clear language and an engaging source-based approach.
We host a number of online and local events to help you get ready to teach the new GCSE and we’ll provide free support materials to help you plan, deliver and assess the new course.
