As a teacher i always find it useful to write my own answer to the coursework when following new BTEC specifications. This resource contains my interpretation of all of the criteria (distinction grade) for unit 1 learning aim A of the new BTEC Tech award in Enterprise component 2. i have been teaching BTEC since 2007 and so am confident that my interpretation of the specification is correct. Language used in places is not what is expected for a 14-16 year old, however can be used as a useful guide. Learning aim A component 2 appears to be the biggest part of this component in regards to the critical content that needs to be covered. I have spoken to BTEC to clarify what they mean by plan a micro-enterprise ‘activity’. The response was that it can be a enterprise plan for a one-off activity e.g. an event or something that has a finishing date to the enterprise or it could be a plan for a new-start up micro-business. Providing it meets the critical content any of the two versions can be done. My preference would be an enterprise activity that has a finish date. In that case i have designed two coursework answers for this learning aim. One that focuses on a plan for a full start up business (A dog walking company based in Southampton running 6 days a week all year round) and the other for a micro-enterprise activity that lasts a few weeks (dog walking enterprise activity for the 6 week summer holiday). As a bonus resource I have also included a step by step pupil checklist to help pupils self assess themselves whilst completing each task within this part of the coursework.

A Level (yr 13) revision guide for WJEC/Eduqas Economics

A Level (yr 13) revision guide for WJEC/Eduqas Economics

(0)
A Level Economics revision guide (year 13 topics) focuses directly on WJEC Eduqas new A Level specifications from 2015. This revision guide is very student friendly focusing on key areas of every year 13 topic. This guide was originally created for my A Level students with the aim of reducing workload in the build up to summer A Level exams. Secondly, it has been a fantastic resource in class when summarising each topic area, with many students using it in class to help them understand content and referring to when practicing exam questions. This especially helped in the summer term in the build up to A Level exams. The order of topics links directly to the WJEC and Eduqas specifications and the revision guide also contains practice questions at the end for students to test their knowledge. For full A Level coverage this revision guide should be bought with AS and A Level (year 12) revision guide for WJEC and Eduqas. For confidence, this revision guide has been created by a senior examiner with experience examining for two exam boards that has been teaching Economics for over 10 years. The guide has been written specifically for the WJEC and Eduqas A Level but also contains 80% of coverage of all other exam boards so it will be a useful revision guide and topic summary for all exam boards. The picture shows the top part of one of the pages within the guide for reference. There are altogether 112 pages in total in this revision guide.
