ABOUT THIS COURSE

This is an informal and friendly course where teachers who are new to teaching Pearson/Edexcel A Level Economics can discuss and plug their knowledge gaps or their pedagogy inexperience. I aim to create a safe space where teachers can identify their areas of weakness and solution to them. For HOD’s it will provided an opportunity to understand the issues teachers new to the economics classroom face and ways to support them. The course will provide practice steps that can be used immediately in the classroom and an opportunity to network with other teachers.

The course will identify the depth teachers need to go into for theories and how to apply them to a number of different topic areas.  Emphasis will also be on the key assessment criteria – application, analysis and evaluations.
