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.
