Why Qualify in GCSE RE?
Colleges, Universities and Employers know the value of Religious Education. They are aware of the curriculum and opportunities RE offers young people and how this has prepared them for adult life.
Teachers, lecturers and employers know that
- You know about living, studying and working in a diverse society and the importance of being able to get on with those whose viewpoints and values differ from your own
- You know how to deal with issues arising not just in school or college, but in your neighbourhood and workplace
- You can make moral judgements
- You know how to promote community cohesion and tackle racism and discrimination
- You are able to talk about global achievements and global injustices
- You have awareness of how RE is also linked so strongly into many other fields – music, art, history, politics, social and cultural issues, global economics – which may contribute to your further study or work positively
- You have an understanding of how religious belief affects all of our lives directly or indirectly
All College Departments look favourably on Religious Education because through your academic study you have learned skills to explain, argue and evaluate. You have developed skills to listen, respond sensitively and share your own views coherently.Additionally many employers e.g. Banks, the Police Force, nursing, law, teaching and commercial employers see Religious Education as contributing to living a full and enriched life. Influencing positive relationships and encouraging a positive work ethic.
It is possible to continue the study of Religious Studies at A or AS level. At these levels it is a good accompaniment to many different subjects in the arts, such as English and History, and also some of the Sciences. It can also be studied in higher education. These qualifications can lead to careers in teaching, journalism, social work, law and local government.
