What attendees say

As always with tutor2u, this CPD was excellent. I am an experienced Head of Department for Business and last year, due to a lack of staffing, I 'inherited' the Economics department and the teaching to go with it. The CPD session that tutor2u provide, along with all of the resources you have available, have been a life saver! Not only have they made it possible for me to take on the challenge of delivering Economics A level, but they have also made it really enjoyable to do!...The course was very clear - pitched exactly right and included lots of practical resources and activities to take away (also, the lunch was good!) - thank you!

Business & Economics Teacher

I thoroughly enjoyed the training and found the exam advice exceptionally valuable! I feel a lot more equipped to teach Economics to my A Level students and I'm looking forward to using the strategies and resources you've so generously provided.

Economics Teacher

Inspiring, funny, lots of great ideas, and resources were shared. Good discussions among the tables! Jon and Ruth are absolutely amazing and unstoppable. So happy I joined both Y12 and Y13 Macroeconomics sessions. I feel much more equipped now to teach my students in an engaging and thoughtful way!
