This new course is designed for all teachers who wish to ensure all students maximise their potential in A level Biology. By providing a range of proven, effective advanced teaching techniques, reinvigorated approaches, the course aims to help teachers created outstanding teaching, learning and achievement success to raise the overall attainment of their classes.

Emphasis will be placed on the content students often struggle with and strategies to teach this more successfully, how to wrestle with the challenges of the synoptic nature of the courses and skills students need for successful exam performance.

At the heart of Lee’s course is the need for rigorous understanding of the topics covered in order to flexibly apply this knowledge to unfamiliar examination scenarios, and how this can be improved for students from different starting points.

This intensive new course will demonstrate how to guide your students to achieve their maximise possible grades in future AQA A Level Biology examinations. The course is designed for teachers of AQA A Level Biology, but would be of benefit to teachers of other exam boards.
