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.
