|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
This course is ideal for NQTs, experienced teachers of other subjects who will be teaching economics for the first time and teachers who haven't taught economics for a long time. The aim of the event is to enable delegates to leave with a deep understanding of the Assessment Objectives for AS / A2 and confidence in knowing ahead of time what the common student pitfalls and errors tend to be.
As part of the day, all delegates receive a bumper pack of resources that will help them to get started on their delivery of the course. Teaching approaches are an integral part of the day and focus on developing knowledge of the key micro and macro topic areas for each of AS/A2.
A super course for teachers New to AS and A2 Economics.
