About the course

Please note that this CPD course contains some resources/content from Success in Edexcel A-Level Business and is a repeat of our previous Essential CPD course.

What we'll cover

  • We take a quick look at the Edexcel A-Level Business Specification and how the course is structured and assessed. We also outline the different types of questions within Edexcel A-Level Business and look at how to tackle the Paper 3 pre-release

  • Building on Session 1, we examine the different demands of each type of Edexcel A-Level Business question, with advice and guidance on how students can structure their answers to each question type to maximise their marks

  • A deep dive in to exam technique with techniques and strategies that teachers can use in the classroom to develop their students knowledge and understanding, application, analysis and evaluation. We also examine how students exam answers are marked and look at some sample answers

  • Here, we quickly examine the common areas of weakness, as well as the mistakes, misunderstandings and misconceptions that students make during the course

  • Here we explore some topic areas and concepts that students often find difficult, such as PED, YED, CPA and Investment Appraisal, with ideas on how to deliver these topics, as well as resources to help teachers feel more confident when teaching them

What attendees say

It was superb - extremely informative. I will now be able to start teaching it in September with confidence. Many thanks to all involved.

Business Teacher

I recently attended the Business Studies course, and it was truly excellent. Everything from the venue and the food to the resources provided was top-notch. However, the highlight of the day was undoubtedly the presenters. Their creative and informative approach made the entire experience great. They fostered an environment where we all felt welcomed to ask questions, and their responses were always helpful and insightful. I left the course feeling motivated and better equipped to be a more effective teacher than before. Despite giving up a day of my holiday to attend, it was worth every minute.

Business Teacher

Once again, I was really impressed with the Tutor2U Training offered in London. Graham is exceptionally knowledgeable and the content of the day was very useful. Location was easy to get to, being central to London and overall the course was great. Having done the GCSE courses before and attending the student workshops, we will definitely be looking out for more in the future. Thanks again.
