New A-level Politics website launched

Dated: 21 February 2012


This site came about after one of my A Level students sent me a tweet complaining about the lack of good quality A Level web content. After working out how to use Twitter I read the message and quickly got down to work and assigned my students to start writing articles on news stories with an A Level Politics edge.

And here it is, a website dedicated to A Level Government and Politics written by current and ex-students with a little input from myself. This site is not to replace text books (and there are many good ones available from all good bookstores written by affiliates of exam boards) but rather to address a major problem I and my students find, namely accessing current examples. Studying politics is about linking the theory to news. Yet the greatest challenge often is being able to use the news appropriately. Our articles are written to link news to your syllabus so you can write example rich essays.

This site was designed principally for my students who study the Edexcel Government and Politics Route A (other exam boards are available). At unit 1 I teach ‘People and Politics’ and unit 2 ‘Governing the UK’. At unit 3 we teach ‘UK Political Issues’ and unit 4 ‘EU Political Issues’. However even if you don’t follow Edexcel or our route, we are sure you will find this site useful.

I have allowed my students and ex-students to write in their own style and rarely filter their political views. Good political essays should have strong arguments with counter opinions.

We hope you enjoy studying Politics and it will be great to get your feedback on our articles!
