Proficiency Award 2 in PSYCHOLOGY

Learn more about the mind and behaviour

Psychology is a broad field of study. So broad, in fact, that it is hard to adequately define. In general terms, it is the study of human and animal behaviour and mental processes. Given the scope of psychology, psychologists themselves usually specialise in particular areas of work such as education, mental health, sports, or organisations.   

This course is designed to provide the student with a broad grounding in different subject areas of psychology. It will be of benefit to anyone with an interest in this fascinating discipline and can be applied to many different work roles.
