This pre-recorded training is an introduction to our online and face to face Mocks Marking Training events. It will give you an overview of:

  • the assessment requirements of the new specification
  • the new types of questions that exist within the revised papers
  • how mark schemes are developed to match the question
  • asked some sample student responses to questions
  • how we can support you in marking your students' work.

Getting ready to teach events

As part of the support we're providing to help you with delivering the new Edexcel AS and A level Economics B qualifications, we're running free Getting Ready to Teach events from March 2015.

Each full-day event will look at how the new specifications can be delivered in the classroom.

Book your place at one of these free events to learn about:

  • the structure, content and assessment of these new qualifications, and the support available to guide you through these changes
  • possible teaching and delivery strategies, including co-teaching AS and A level
  • new topics for Theme 1 and Theme 2 and how to plan your teaching of them

You'll also have the opportunity to network with other teachers, discuss best practice and discover more about the full range of support we'll provide.
