Sociology

About the Level 3 Sociology Certificate

Broadly speaking, sociology is the study of human society. It is important for professionals to conduct research in this field so that we can understand the systems and behaviours of different social groups. Experts in sociology also help us to identify societal problems and devise ways to improve these situations. Embarking on a Level 3 sociology course with Stonebridge College will help you to start thinking like a sociologist.

During your online studies, you will learn about a number of different social systems, evaluate the socialisation process and pinpoint the various issues that impact society. Altogether, the course has seven modules and will take approximately 150 hours to complete. However this is a home learning course and at Stonebridge College, we encourage our students to take all the time they need to complete the work.

Who should study this course?

This course has been designed for people who want to develop a deeper understanding of human society. Whether you want to progress to university or you simply have an interest in people watching, this course will help you to achieve your goals.

At Stonebridge College, we don't ask that you have any prior qualifications or experience before you enrol on our sociology distance learning course. All we ask is that you have an interest in the topic and the motivation to engage in home study.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of your online course, you will have a foundation knowledge in sociology. You be able to name a number of common social institutions and have an understanding of important social issues.

Having gained your Level 3 qualification, you may choose to study sociology at a higher level. If you did want to progress to degree level, you may consider embarking on our Access to HE Diploma (Social Science) and applying to university.

Alternatively, you may choose to use your qualification to find work straight away. Whatever you choose to do, you can guarantee that this home study sociology course will help you on your way. Careers related to the study of sociology include:

  • Social researcher
  • Social worker
  • Human resource officer

Certificate 2 is issued by Quality Licence Scheme: Level 3 Certificate of Achievement

At the end of this course successful learners will be given the option to receive a Certificate of Achievement from the Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.
