Free support

The qualification page provides:

  • a Getting Started Guide (which provides more detailed specification guidance)
  • an editable scheme of work
  • content from past training courses

We have secured IAL recognition from over 30 new global universities and admissions bodies.

New countries added to the list include Belarus, Israel and Turkey and we increased the recognition in popular European destinations Italy, Netherlands, Germany and Spain.

Our Getting Ready To Teach training aims to help you get started with the teaching of this qualification.

The training is available as a recording.

The packs that have been used in previous training sessions are listed on the website.

Teachers tend to think of using apps as teaching tools in the classroom. Yet, they can also be used for general tasks, such as workload management, productivity, and organisation.

We have a public subject community where you will be able to see all posts without logging in, although you will need to log in with your Edexcel Online details to post a comment.

The Economics, Business and Enterprise Association (EBEA) is the professional subject association for everyone interested in the teaching and study of Economics, Business and Enterprise.

It is free to become a registered member and this gives you access to an archive of journals and articles which are older than one year. Paid membership (which is tax deductible) provides you with a monthly newsletter and a termly printed journal.

Free resources

Ingr Nomics is designed to simplify the study of economics. Each video is based on the theory learners need to know and apply to do well in the exams.

Each short video will simplify something that sounds difficult. Learners will see that they can master the concepts and answer exam questions as a result.

Ian Marcousé's Topical Economics case studies are emailed to subscribers every month and are now free to subscribers. These include exam-style case studies with answers as well as revision tests. The stories used are all very current (topical) and, as they are sent in Word, can be easily adapted as you wish.

The FT's free online subscriptions to students aged 16-19, their teachers and schools around the world is a very valuable resource for all Economics teachers.

Paid-for support

There are two student books:

  • the IAS Student Book covers units 1 and 2
  • the IAL Student Book covers units 3 and 4

If you bought copies of the textbooks for this qualification the answers to the questions set in the textbooks are available.
