Our approach to Economics is to apply economic theory to support analysis of current economic problems and issues, encouraging students to appreciate the interrelationships between microeconomics and macroeconomics.

We have worked closely with teachers and universities to develop engaging and up-to-date content that takes into account fundamental advances and changes in economic ideas.

Both our AS and A-level provide strong stand-alone qualifications that can be taught together or independently of one another, allowing you to choose the approach that is best suited to yours and your students' needs.

We offer a comprehensive range of support and resources including direct contact with our economics subject team, resources to help you plan and deliver our courses and teacher CPD courses.
