Course Information

Business Studies training will involve some post-16 teaching. All secondary trainees receive 2 hours of subject training per week, led by a highly experienced subject leader, examiner and someone who has demonstrated consistently outstanding results. This ensures that training is highly tailored to delivery to pupils in KS4 and 5, and covers the skills needed to teach across examination key stages. We offer great insights into how outstanding schools operate and what we do as teachers to continue to inspire and encourage pupils in a love of business and economics, and the high degree of relevance they have for employment in the business, technological and political spheres.

With both vocational and more traditional academic routes we will explore the pedagogical differences between the two and the strategies required for success in delivering both BTECs, GCSEs and A-Levels.

You will have access to high-quality materials but will be encouraged to be very independent in nature towards the development of your own resources for teaching. As business and economics professionals it is critical that you can operate as the only subject specialist in your school and your year with GORSE SCITT will develop the necessary skills to do this with confidence.
