    A Level Economics

Introduction

The Economics course aims to help students develop an interest in and enthusiasm for the study of the subject. They should appreciate the contribution of economics to the understanding of the wider economic and social environment. Students should use an enquiring, critical and thoughtful approach to the study of economics and have an ability to think as an economist. This course requires students to develop an understanding of economic concepts and theories through critical consideration of current economic issues, problems and instructions that affect everyday life. They should also analyse, explain and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the market economy and the role of government within it. A critical approach to economic models and methods of enquiry should be developed.

Entry Requirements

Grade 6 in GCSE Mathematics.

Curriculum Overview & Exam Information

We have included curriculum overviews as well as exam information to support students and parents/carers to have a better and broader understanding of how learning develops in each year group. The curriculum overview documents below indicate: the knowledge, skills and understanding that students will gain, how this unit builds on prior learning, and what mastery will look like for each year group. This year, we have added a catch up summary at the beginning to outline how we will catch up on lost learning during school closure. The red writing also indicates where the curriculum has been changed this academic year to support student catch up.
