What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4962)
"An excellent resource, the range of useful sections is outstanding and I have not seen a resource which covers all areas of a BTEC unit more thoroughly, from the detailed handbooks to the teaching PowerPoint slides... I particularly like the four Handbooks which are so comprehensive in nature with notes on topics, activities and an assignment for each section, through the use of the earlier material students should find the completion of the actual assignment much easier... I also like the Scheme of Work which allows me as a teacher to carefully plan the whole Unit in a much more detailed way and leave me in greater confidence that I will have it complete on time... This will definitely enhance learning as it is so thorough. As a teacher it will allow me to decide what sections I will use or maybe adapt to get the full potential from the source. I think it will also benefit the students as they can have reference to the notes and activities they have done prior to undertaking their actual assignments... It is so comprehensive that I would not need another resource to complete the whole unit. Also the professional way it has been done in conjunction with the numerous business examples used throughtout make it ideal."– G Nocher, Teacher of Busienss & Independent Reviewer
'A good general overview of market research.'&ndahs; G&ndsp;Webb, Chief Examiner for an Awarding Body; Independent Reviewer
'I like the resource. It includes a comprehensive assignment which can be adapted to local businesses if necessary. It includes a lot of real life business examples of illustrate market research theories. It is also not too text heavy with plenty of diagrams, figures and illustrations... The assignment tasks are aligned to the BTEC assessment criteria which is helpful... I like the assignment and the way that it is written as it is applied to a vocational setting... I feel that this resource will enhance learning because it includes a number of vocational examples which students can relate to. It helps students to acquire and relate the theory to the various vocational business examples used. The resource builds up knowledge in steps and links with the BTEC level 3 spec closely.'– J Whatford, Head of Business Studies & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4340)
"The advice given in the teacher guide was good and all sections were easty to follow on the whole and very interesting... I found the depth of knowledge was good... the assignments were well thought out and matched the criteria of the spec... Very detailed theory... all of it relevant to the specification and the assignment briefs... Would ensure students would have to stop and think about this subject which I think they would enjoy it... Good interpretation of specification and use of case study/ situations to analyse and apply theory... All theory work is covered as per spec with plenty of discussion sections... this is a fasinating subject and students would gain a great deal form studying it... I really enjoyed this resource." — C McBain, Business Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"Introduction in each assignment acts as a reminder to key legal aspects... Easy to use with clear links to case studies... Clearly written assignments linked to the specification using relevant and interesting cases... Each assignment used appropriate language... With clear links to the specifications, this resource will help students understand the aspects of criminal law and its relationship to business while enabling them to achieve the BTEC Extended Diploma." — K Trimarchi, Business Lectuter & Independent Reviewer
"There were some very useful cases to demonstrate legal points... Good use of cases to demonstrate knowledge, which can be used it the assignment too... Intention described well with cases... Good examples of strict liability offences... Explanation of theft is clear for students to follow... Good coverage of the Fraud Act... Good coverage of powers of government agencies." — S Evans, Head of Business & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4341)
"A very useful resource which goes beyond being merely a written assignment. It contains the supporting lessons, with clear lesson aims and prepares the students to meet the requirements for the unit set by Edexcel... I particularly liked the lessons which contain appropriate activities which prepare the students for the assignment. I like the fact the assignments are broken into 4 parts which link appropriate criteria together... The resource enhances learning as it breaks the criteria down into manageable sections of learning - the clear lesson aims inform the learners of what they need to achieve and this builds their knowledge up in stages enabling them to be confident in attempting the criteria at the end of the series of lessons... The assignment is presented in a very professional and engaging manner... This resource looks fantastic and would be a great help to any teacher - new or experienced - in delivering this unit." — C Clarke, Head of FE Business & Independent Reviewer
"An excellent resource... Very easy to follow, good guidelines and easy to interpret key terms and concepts with clear defined objectives and teacher guidance. Educational value is excellent as each section is broken down clearly for maximum understanding and clarity... Good depth of knowledge and well presented assignments... Great examples of documents as these are usually hard to find to use in class. Good range of slides... consistent throughout... Section 3 very good more of a work book approach with plenty of examples and sections to fill in." — C McBain, Business Teacher & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4370)
"A very comprehensive resource. It is written a style which students will be able to relate to well and also includes graphics etc. to illustrate points visually and break up the text. There are recap questions at convenient points so that students can continually review their progress/knowledge... All accounts are well presented, and I like the use of comment boxes to highlight/explain points... The powerpoints link well to the companion and can be used to work through the guide logically in class... All areas of the specification are covered in a great deal of detail... It helps learning as students can practice review questions at the end of each topic, they can then see if they have mastered the topic... this resource is excellent as it is written in a language that the target market can relate to... I would definitely buy the resource and also recommend it to other teachers." — J Whatford, Business Subject Leader & Independent Reviewer
"I liked this resource immensely, it is clear, concise as the subject matter allows, easy to follow and read. It matches the specification and a lot of time and effort has gone into the preparation... Like the layout - good clear overview and case studies were current and relevant and would interest the students - e.g. Nintendo. The activities were challenging in parts with answers given underneath and good check the answer activities in section 3... Financial accounting can be a difficult topic to interest students this is very comprehensive and well written and easy to follow with assignments referred to in slides and lots of recap which is good - excellent resource. Liked the peer work for assignment in WB 2... D1 on the assignment was inspired - choice to produce posters was dubious at first but when I read it and thought about it thought was a great idea... Really liked this resource - teach a lot of accounts and this is great." — C McBain, Business Studies Teacher & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4389)
"A very useful resource which contains detailed notes alongside the assignment. There are also lots of short tests to complete in class which ensure the delivery is broken up with suitable activities... The guidance enhances learning as the class tasks prepare the students for the main coursework activity... The more gifted students are also catered for with the stretch activities... The assessment criteria from Edexcel is included in the resource and ensures that the coursework is meeting the relevant criteria... There is a clear vocational / case study included for the tasks which is recommended by Edxcel." — C Clarke, Head of Business & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4512)
"A very useful BTEC resource which goes beyond the assignment and contains detailed notes. It is good it provides lots of activities for students to practice with before their final assessment... I particularly liked that it contained the BTEC assessment documentation such as the observation records. I also liked the activities which build up the students knowledge slowly preventing them from becoming confused... The clearly structured class activities build the up the students' confidence and enable them to learn the skills needed for the assignment... The assignment is nicely broken down into small activities with good supporting documentation which put the assignment in a vocational setting." — C Clarke, Head of Business & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4571)
"It matches the specification completely and thoroughly... I enjoyed this resource and the structured nature of the documents... I particularly liked the worksheets and companions to each task, that make it very clear as to what needs to be done for all elements of the assignment... it gives students a greater structure to their learning...
