A-level Business: New models, theories and frameworks

Suitable for

All teachers of AS/A-level Business, regardless of exam board.


The focus of this course is new models, theories and frameworks that will help you deliver key topics in all specifications more effectively and develop students’ analytical and evaluative skills for all the new specifications.

Models and frameworks help students to structure their ideas, analyse key issues and make better judgements. Whether or not these are specifically listed in your specification, these models will enhance your teaching and help students develop their skills and demonstrate their understanding in key areas more effectively.

If you find models such as the Boston matrix and Ansoff matrix useful, then you will find these new models and frameworks equally valuable.
