About this event

This student workshop is not exam-board specific; it will cover core topics common to AQA, Edexcel (A), OCR and eduqas. The workshop sessions and support materials will highlight exam-board differences wherever possible.

The Strong Foundations workshop format is designed to:

  • Reinforce core A Level Economics teaching content that has been taught so far, including key foundation topics from Year 1
  • Enable students to catch-up with, and re-cap key topics from Year 1 (AS) that will may be examined in the terminal exams but which will not be taught again
  • Build student understanding of, and confidence in the core assessment skills that they need to master in order to perform strongly in the three terminal papers.
  • Help students prepare effectively, and provide a focus for mock exams in Year 13

The A Level Economics Strong Foundations Workshop combines:

  • Four hours of intensive large-group tuition by our experienced A Level Economics presenter team
  • An enlarged workshop booklet containing all the session content, extension activities, guidance on exam-board specific exam technique and other essential revision materials
