Learning Pathway:

A Level


NQF Level 3


The course is based around a theme examining how conflict, both internal and external affects the relationships between peoples and their governments. Through studies of Russia from 1881-1953 and England 1629-67 you’ll study what happens when one form of government breaks down and another takes its place. What does it mean for the economy and society? In contrast, a study of nineteenth and early twentieth century Britain shows how the challenges posed by conflict can be met by existing government structures. The last unit is an Individual Assignment based on a study of International Relations between 1879 and 1980. This could focus on key events, themes or individuals involved. AS Level Unit 1 – Russia in Revolution 1881-1924, Stalin’s Russia 1924-53. Unit 2 – The Experience of Warfare in Britain; Crimea, Boer and WW1 1854-1929.
