College launches CSI: Stratford with new psychology & criminology course

2nd April 2019

Stratford-upon-Avon College is delighted to announce the latest addition to its School Leaver provision: Psychology & Criminology.

This full-time level 3 vocational course will be introduced in September and applications are now open.

The two-year course covers a wide spectrum of subjects ranging from criminological theories to crime and punishment – the justice system in action. It offers a great route for students looking for careers in support work, victim support, police roles, education, charity work, youth work and more.

Students will benefit from teaching by specialist staff using a variety of teaching methods, including seminars and workshops, which will provide learners with the knowledge and skills for either continuing on to further learning or embarking on a relevant career.

Course lecturer Aimee Clayden comments: “The College is frequently asked by schools about Psychology and Criminology so we know the demand is there amongst young people. The course offers an insight into the populist social science specialisms of psychology and criminology. It is unique because it’s an alternative to A-Levels, and Criminology is not yet a widespread offer at level 3.”

On completion of the course, students will gain an Extended Certificate in Psychology and an Applied Diploma in Criminology, and can progress to university level study.
