CPD A level (AQA) SOCIOLOGY Spring 2019


LONDON         Monday February 7th

NORWICH   Friday February 8th

BIRMINGHAM   Tuesday February 12th

This CPD aims to help teachers prepare their students more effectively for the challenges of the new A level specification. It will focus on A level Sociology (AQA spec) looking at the challenges of A level essay-writing, the new 10 mark questions, how the MIC question will be marked (somewhat differently to in the past), and revising topics delivered in the first year of the course.

KEITH TROBE is a hugely experienced teacher, writer and examiner of AS and A level Sociology. A recent Principal Examiner and co-author of the main textbooks used in schools and colleges, Keith will use his experience to analyse the content and assessment in the new AQA Sociology specification (AQA). Keith is also the owner of Lindisfarne Press.

We can also bring this CPD into school consortia, local authorities and academy chains. Email us for details.

The sessions will be essentially practical and each participant will leave with a pack of materials that can be used with students and colleagues. This will include briefing sheets, worked examples of answers and guides to the new specification.

See CPD page for details



At Lindisfarne we are changing the way we sell our teaching and revision packs. We are now selling them in pdf form for £15 per pack. This enables us to pass on the savings from no longer having to print the materials. The packs are exactly the same as the printed versions.

All you need to do in addition to sending in your order is to provide us with a school email address to which we can send them.

All our packs are written by Keith Trobe, a hugely experienced examiner and author of A level Sociology. Keith has been a senior examiner for Sociology with a leading exam board for over twenty-five years (Principal Examiner for ten of those years). He is also the co-author of the very successful Napier Press series of textbooks and revision guides. Keith uses all of this experience in the creation of these materials.

LP12   30 Mark Education essays

LP5     Revising Education and Methods in Context

LP4      Revising Families and Methods






Lindisfarne Press was established in 1996 by Keith Trobe to produce high quality  teaching/revision materials and to run CPD for teachers and students on A/AS level Sociology courses.

teacherOne teacher commented on our materials, “this is exactly what I need for teaching sociology”. Another said, “these packs are full of activities for teaching sociology”. .

Lindisfarne Press produces sociology revision packs for all the main topics taught in AQA AS and A level. There are revision packs on Families and Households with Methods, Education, Beliefs, Theory and Methods, and Crime and Deviance. Each pack contains a complete programme for sociology revision. There are revision notes differentiated according to ability, example answers and a complete coverage of the topic. There are also teaching packs and exemplar answers with commentaries packs.

We also offer student seminars as part of a revision programme for A level sociology. Delivered by senior examiners, these are the perfect way to stimulate sociology revision. For any student revising for  A level, these seminars give them a real insight into how what examiners are looking for. We bring these sociology revision seminars directly into schools and colleges. For anyone following the AQA sociology specification, these are an ideal way to start sociology revision.

Lindisfarne Press run continuing professional development courses for those involved in teaching sociology. These CPD courses are run all over the UK in June/July and November/December. Delivered only by experienced senior examiners, these courses up-date sociology teachers with new developments as well as teaching and learning strategies for the teaching of AS and A level sociology.
