    I've just been informed that I will need to offer a one year course in a Business related subject to year 9 as from September. It should be a taster for GCSE but doesn't need to cover GCSE content. I'd prefer to offer something that will lead to a qualification. Any suggestions??

    I'm half way through the first year of the a Year 9 course and I have sort of concentrated on 3 strands. Firstly, they completed a marketing unit. At present the students are finishing a finance unit which has included an element of personal finance, such as pay, tax etc and also break even, CFF, P & L etc. This is with the aim of them planning and running a mini enterprise in the summer.

    Could you possibly send me a SoL? I've decided to go for a mixture of personal finance, ethical issues and some inyro to business. Turns out I will only have each group for 12 weeks at most
