A Level Philosophy (ALP) provides training and resources for teachers and students of A Level philosophy and religious studies for Years 12 and 13. We also organise talks and conferences in schools.
Our INSET days for teachers and conferences for students cover material for the AS and A2 level exams in AQA Philosophy, and may also be of interest for those taking the International Baccalaureate. Our events on philosophy of religion and on ethics are also suitable for students and teachers of AQA, OCR, and Edexcel philosophy of religion and ethics. All events are facilitated by Dr Michael Lacewing, a professional philosopher, who has been working with teachers and students in schools for 10 years. You can read what students and teachers have thought of our past events.
In March 2013 Michael Lacewing was appointed to the AQA Higher Education Expert Panel for Philosophy to develop the new A Level Philosophy specification.
ALP has also developed the UK’s premier on-line collection of resources for A level philosophy, written by Michael Lacewing, which is hosted by the publishers Routledge at http://cw.routledge.com/textbooks/philosophy. ALP continues to host free resources for A level religious studies.
You can order Michael Lacewing’s textbooks for AS and A2 philosophy from Routledge: Philosophy for AS, Philosophy for A2: Philosophical Problems, and Philosophy for A2: Key Themes. A companion website accompanies the books.
