As the most popular choices for AS and A-level Sociology, our specifications offer an engaging and effective introduction to sociology.

We worked with teachers, higher education and the British Sociological Association to produce clear, up-to-date and stimulating specifications.

We have designed the AS and A-level specifications to cover the core areas of sociology and be fully co-teachable within the first year of study.

A comprehensive range of support is available including face-to-face events, digital resources and continuous professional development training.
