About the workshop

Our cinema workshops are designed and delivered by the trusted tutor2u subject teams, all of whom know what students need to succeed in the 2025 exams.

Each workshop has four fast-paced, interactive and fun sessions delivered in the cinema screen. You’ll take away lots of great advice on effective exam technique, and a fantastic workshop booklet packed with useful information.

Plus, you also get an enrolment on the supporting Grade Booster Online course, providing hours of extra help all the way to your final exam.

Please note: this workshop is designed for Edexcel GCSE Business students only - it is not suitable for other exam boards such as AQA, eduqas or OCR.

It is a requirement that during the event, teachers sit with their students. The workshop starts at 10.30am, please arrive in plenty of time so that students can take their seat in the cinema screen before the workshop begins. All students will need a pen and a calculating implement.

What attendees say

Absolutely great! I knew I was lacking application and evaluation in my papers, however, the workers at the Grade Booster really clearly explained everything for us and now I feel much more confident to go into my exams! The best part about it was how they got everyone involved and made it a positive atmosphere along with the chance to win prizes for correct answers! Amazing.


Excellent provision and information. Sometimes students need someone who is not the teacher to reaffirm advice and content and give some positive momentum - the cinema workshops do this and more!

Head of Business & Economics

A great way to learn for the present media-focused generation. The big screen format makes key points ultra-clear to the audience and the cinema atmosphere seems to encourage much more interaction than in other types of student workshops.

Head of Department

The presenters are engaging, the activities are interactive, and the guidance is outstanding. Our pupils always come away from the day with positive things to say, and their grades have been boosted.
