In our lessons, pupils will have a chance to engage in discussions about current economic issues and through various tasks and activities, they can nurture their communication, critical thinking, and analytical skills.
By the end of the course, students will possess the necessary skills, knowledge, and confidence to pursue further studies or embark on their chosen careers. They will be well-prepared to tackle any future challenges that come their way.
Pupils will look at economic activity through the lens of consumers, producers, government, and the workings of the global economy. Pupils will be given opportunities to focus on real-world issues and reflect on moral, ethical, and sustainable issues that arise as a result of the impact of economic activity.
By applying their economic knowledge and skills, pupils will investigate both national and global economic situations and issues that have emerged in the past 15 years. Additionally, they will gain an understanding of the policies governments have employed in their attempts to address these situations and issues.
Throughout the course, pupils will enhance their quantitative skills, enabling them to analyse economic data and interpret graphs and charts. They will also learn to recognise the potential limitations of both quantitative and qualitative data, fostering a well-rounded perspective.
