A diary date here for all colleagues teaching the new BTEC First Award in Business specification - Friday 15 June 2012.  tutor2u is running a special Teacher Resource CPD course at the amazing Drayton Manor Theme Park designed for colleagues teaching the new specification from September 2012.  We’ll look at the new methods of assessment and provide guidance on resourcing and organising the other new units too.  We’ll also have some guest speakers from Drayton Manor - a great case study to use for BTEC First. The course programme is outlined further below.

The first session starts with a mega-bundle of activities and resources to support the delivery of this mandatory internally assessed core unit.  We’ll provide ideas for assignment design, lesson starters and group activities to get students thinking about business start-ups and consider the influences of the business environment. Case studies, video clips and ready to use resources all provided.

The team at Drayton Manor will provide insights on how they provide effective customer service. Superb case study material to support the delivery of Unit 4, focused specifically on the key grading criteria and content

Not only will we be showcasing engaging activities to deliver Unit 4, but will provide a Unit 4 assignment brief pack.

The pack will include pre-visit tasks, tasks that can be adapted and completed on the visit with a view to gathering vital information and evidence for this Unit and the assignment brief.

Graham Prior (one of our acclaimed TBBLE team and the man behind Making Finance Fun) will provide a wealth of ideas and resources to deliver this externally assessed unit, including some top approaches to supporting students with their revision.
