New A Level Economics - Quantitative Methods aims to provide delegates with approaches and ready to use resources that promote greater preparation for teachers planning and delivering A level Economics when the new specifications arrive (September 2015).

All major awarding bodies will now include up 20% of their assessment marks to quantitative methods applied by candidates during exams.  This will range from a series of numerical calculations to interpretation of data in tabular form and the construction of diagrams.

The event gives advice about topic matters that are more likely to be assessed, types of assessment that might take place and about how the new exam structure differs from previous versions.  The day will involve a combination of delegate tasks and show-casing of ready-to-use resources and worksheets.

All ideas and resources have been created by experienced teachers with our team including teachers currently delivering A level Economics using AQA, Edexcel and OCR awarding bodies.  These resources are aimed at all teachers, whatever their experience.

The day is highly interactive and provides plenty of opportunity for attendees to explore new learning activities, discuss how they are used and consider ways of adapting them to meet the individual needs of their learners.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with other Economics teachers and the sharing of teaching techniques and data sources provides a constant theme for the day.

Evidence underpinning this approach

All resources and approaches have been actively used in economics classrooms across the UK. Tutor2u have consistently received positive feedback via direct email and twitter on how the resources have been used and have helped to enliven lessons and promote a positive learning environment.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Success of the event is constantly monitored throughout the day through discussion with delegates. Following the event delegates are encouraged to contact the team directly to evaluate the event and materials provided.

Follow-up activities and support

The tutor2u team are happy to offer support to attendees as required. The tutor2u Linkedin group and twitter feed (@tutor2u) provide an excellent platform for collaboration and sharing best practice.
