Teacher’s review of our first editions
“The Napier Press books have been absolutely key in getting the Criminology Applied Diploma set up at our college. Without the clear guidance through the topics areas and controlled assessment and exam pointers, the start-up of the course would have been much more difficult.
Each unit is set out very clearly under headings and is very easy for the students to navigate around. The level of detail allows for easy differentiation and also means the content is accessible to students of all abilities.
The books, alongside the scheme of work, take a lot of the pressure and time consumption off planning. This along with the student workbooks gives teachers more time to produce their own resources to fit with what has already usefully been provided by the authors. This is particularly useful if a teacher is new to the subject!
The online activities allow students to consolidate their learning of the topic areas and help teachers to check students’ understanding of the topics. Students really like the textbooks and how clearly things are set out; they particularly like the practice exam questions.
I would highly recommend the textbooks to any school or college who are delivering the WJEC Applied Diploma in Criminology.”
Sarah Wickham, Head of Criminology, Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form College, Leeds
