A level history is about the acquisition of vital learning skills as students need to be able to read and digest large amounts of information and pick out what is and is not relevant to the question. History will teach students how to analyse, reflect and formulate arguments and well-substantiated judgements, both verbally and in writing.
Studying A level history not only helps improve students' knowledge of the past but also helps to develop skills that are invaluable in many jobs. Some of the skills include analysing, researching, communication and problem-solving. Students will learn how to prioritise information and learn how to make vital decisions, helping to build an important skill set needed for progression into university or a career. The analytical skills required for history at A level made it a natural foundation for anyone wishing to study law, archaeology or become a teacher for example.
