We have introduced a new Subject Advisor service to support our business qualifications. Led by the new Subject Advisor, Colin Leith, this service is designed to help solve your queries relating to our business qualifications and provide a means of sharing ideas, information and concerns.
The service also offers all teachers of business the opportunity to discuss and share business-related issues.
Central to the service is our online Business Community Forum which provides you with an opportunity to speak to other teachers, raise concerns and ask advice. Whether you have concerns about new specifications and assessment, or you want to know what books and resources to use to support your teaching, you can use our Business Community Forum as a means to find out more. You can also read documents and use links that Colin Leith has posted.
If you are an existing Edexcel centre, you can use the site and the materials posted on it to help with your planning and teaching of our current business qualifications. You can also provide us with feedback as to how we can improve our qualifications, our support and our services.
Colin Leith’s biography:
Colin's 27 years of teaching in secondary schools, including 21 years as a Head of Department, have given him a real understanding of the interests of business teachers.
He has been involved in delivering Edexcel qualifications over the last 20 years, including the A level BIS pilot and the Nuffield A level, and during that time he's worked with teachers both as a moderator and as a co-ordinator of a local teacher support group.
Colin has also spent ten years as a Teacher Examinations Officer, which gave him an appreciation of the importance of the relationship between teacher and awarding body.
