New A Level Business Specifications - Order Your Free Department Briefing

Thursday, May 22, 2014

The exam board specifications for the new linear A Level in Business and new AS Level in Business will be published very soon.

Each exam board will publish the full specification for each qualification (A Level Business & AS Business) together with specimen assessment materials (exam papers and mark schemes) for each of the new units.

The new specifications are required to comply with the recently-published Ofqual subject content criteria which lay out the core content that must comprise at least 60% of each specification. Ofqual has also identified an extended range of quantitative skills which must also be included in the new specifications.

For all exam boards, the new A Level and AS in Business represents a significant change and we are aware that many centres are taking this opportunity to review which exam board will be most suitable for their students.

As a support to all centres intending to offer A Level Business and AS Business from September 2015, tutor2u is producing a comprehensive free report that analyses each of the new specifications. The report, published in early July, will include:

  • A summary of the key changes for each exam board compared with their existing specifications;
  • Comparison of the way in which the Ofqual 60% subject content is covered by the specifications;
  • Analysis of how the extended requirement for quantitative techniques are incorporated
  • An overview of how each new specification differs in terms of assessment, unit structure and content outside the Ofqual core;
  • Analysis of extent to which the AS specification is co-teachable with the linear A Level
  • Our overview of suggested ways in which existing teaching & learning resources can be adapted for effective use from September 2015
  • Our overall opinion on the relative merits of each specification.

We have invited each of the exam boards to contribute to the briefing report by way of answers to a set of consistent Q&A which will further help centres inform their choices.

You can order your free print and/or digital copy of the New A Level in Business - Specification Briefing from our online store now. 

We will despatch the report to you as soon as it is complete

Technological Change and the Watchmakers

Saturday, April 05, 2014

The global watch business is estimated to be worth around $22bn per year. It is still a big market, but the market leaders face some significant competitive threats from substitute products.

Can mechanical watchmakers compete effectively with the big smartphone brands? They need to find a way to do this soon unless their products are to be consigned to targeting a niche segment of older, wealthy customers.

Small is Beautiful in the Fast-Changing Solar Power Industry

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

We perhaps assume that the concept of economies of scale apply when it comes to the generation of "green" energy from solar panels. However, as this excellent video from The Economist explains, the fastest growth in solar panel generating capacity does not come from large solar farms in the desert. 

Instead, the utility industry is struggling to come to terms with the competitive threat from tens of thousands of small, individual installations which are able to sell their solar power into the energy grid. A great profile of a fast-growing industry and market that is making hay whilst the sun shines!

Business Board Questions

Monday, February 10, 2014

To develop students’ evaluation skill, I try to start most lessons with a question based on interesting news stories, from Miley Cyrus’ shock marketing techniques, to Google’s driverless cars. Attached is a PowerPoint with 20 headlines and pictures (some are sooo 2013) along with a business studies related question. Ideal for bellwork, or as a way of introducing a certain topic.

In my classroom, I have 4 pin boards (Finance, Marketing, Human Resources and Operations) and ask students where the specific question belongs; this then serves as a quick reference point to help students make the links between topics and businesses.

Hope it helps!

The Three Little Pigs V The Big Bad Wolf. Who is the guilty party?

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

This was an interesting advert from The Guardian that can be used to introduce a lesson on exam technique and evaluation.

Before showing the 2 minute video, ask the class to evaluate whether or not the wolf from the fable was guilty. The answer is invariably one-sided and the wolf is painted as a mindless tormentor who blew down houses for fun.

Show the clip and then ask the class how the case was made against the little pigs. They should explain how the specifics of the case are examined and analysed (as is the misrepresented antagonist) and a range of quantitative and qualitative evidence is used. The “evaluation” makes a decision, gives the reason, considers the financial and social implications and examines the long term ramifications…. everything the students need to do to get top marks!

Hope it helps.

I am nothing if not current and bang up to date! I watched this 1997 classic for the first time last week and found a gem of a scene in which Matt Damon surprisingly demonstrates some impressive analytical skill.
