Eduqas, a key examination board within the WJEC, has introduced guidance for teaching GCSE Sociology in Wales, with a unique emphasis on using UK crime statistics as a research tool. This approach aims to immerse students in the practical exploration of sociological concepts by analyzing real-world data. By incorporating crime statistics, students can develop critical thinking skills, hone their data analysis abilities, and gain a deeper understanding of the societal factors influencing crime rates. Through this innovative approach, Eduqas empowers students to engage with contemporary social issues and apply their knowledge in a meaningful way.
