For those studying Pearson Edexcel’s GCSE History Option 10 Anglia has created a tour which provides an engaging and relevant introduction to the the Historic Environment: Whitechapel c1870-1900, crime, policing and the inner city. This tour will bring the topic alive for students, helping them to visualise the environment in a way which a text book cannot.
The tour will consider themes such as
Focusing on the case study of Jack the Ripper, the tour will include a detailed examination of investigative policing in Whitechapel, taking in developments in techniques of detective investigation, including the use of sketches, photographs and interviews; problems caused by the need for cooperation between the Metropolitan Police, the City of London Police and Scotland Yard and the added problems caused by an unprecedented threat and its terrifying reality.
This itinerary has been reviewed by the awarding body to confirm that it suitably enhances the teaching and learning process for the related Pearson qualification. A Pearson subject representative has attended the associated tour to ensure that its content meets the requirements of the qualification it is aimed at and to confirm that it is suitable for the intended audience of the qualification.
The review confirms that the itinerary and the tour support the content of this qualification and that the locations covered in each visit and the key outcomes to be delivered as part of each visit enrich the overall learning experience of the course or part of the course it is aimed at.
Endorsement does not cover the Tour Operator nor does it cover the suitability of the individual tour guide who delivers the itinerary on the day. The delivery of the tour and individual experience of the tour are not the responsibility of Pearson; participants are referred to the Tour Operator’s confirmation of booking for further information including pricing structures.
Endorsement of an itinerary and a tour does not cover any other resources produced by the Tour Operator to support the qualification or that will be used to deliver the tour. Whilst Pearson is satisfied that the itinerary and the tour itself are capable of enriching and supporting the achievement of the qualification, it is not essential for studying the qualification. The official specification is the only authoritative source in respect of the qualification content and should be used for definitive guidance to ensure that all learning objectives are fulfilled.
