Presentation that covers all ratio's that all A-Level business courses cover.
It is split into 5 to 6 lessons depending on whether you do the project at the end.
It has the information that students need on each ratio that can be discussed as a class or used to make a good set of student notes - in the first lesson or for homework students are to download company annual reports and print the profit and loss and balance sheet to use to complete practice calculations - or you may have a textbook that you prefer to use. Once you have discussed and made notes practice calculations can commence for the rest of the lesson followed by feedback means your lessons are basically planned for you!

**Great way to end the year**
This is a unique game where students are split into two halves:
Sellers - these students have set amounts of stock that they need to sell for the best price possible.
Buyers - these students have set amounts of items that they need to buy within a budget.
The game runs over three rounds, to give students the opportunity to reflect and change their approach. It teaches them about supply and demand as well as communication and negotiation skills.
It will last a full lesson if the entrepreneurial skills worksheet is used and class discussion is held at the end to reflect on what happened and why. There is then the creating a mobile phone activity to use - so if done properly with class discussion there is enough for two hours.
The buying/selling game is a real gem, students love it and its great for active/creative learning. I used it at a job interview and it went down very well.

This resources breaks down the AQA GCSE Business Studies course down into lessons for both Unit 1 and Unit 2, making planning and organisation much easier.
It include lesson objectives, learning outcomes and suggested teaching activities for Unit 1. For Unit 2 there are learning outcomes, some objectives and some suggested teaching activities, it is not as complete as Unit 1 but it is all set up ready to use.
I have made a range of resources available on TES that go with the scheme of learning.
It is fully editable if you wish to change or add elements and ideas. There is space to add different lesson approaches, so that you can take a different approach depending on the class or teacher preference. There are hyperlinks to key online resources as well as to other places in the document to save time. You can then use the resources space to hyperlink resources for specific lessons. You will find that resources I have shared go with the lessons on the scheme of learning.
The purpose of this document as well as organising a department is to encourage people to share ideas on the document and to record approaches that work to save time in the long term.
Hope you find it useful in organising the course and saves you time!

IN RESPONSE TO RATING: I am not quite sure what the purchaser was expecting, what I am selling is a way to teach a lesson and the resources needed. I would suggest the following:
0-10 Starter: Write on books/post-its examples of when they think they have been treated badly by a business (and feedback from starter)
10-20: Introduce consumer protection laws
20-45: Put students into small groups and ask them to read the information sheets and work out for each mini case study whether a law has been broken and what law might have been broken.
45-55: Class feedback
55-60: Set your own homework or plenary
Would welcome further constructive feedback.
