Overview

This book has been written for teachers of business education and economics in the years of their early professional development, including those on PGCE courses, those in their induction year, and those in years two and three of their teaching career. The book will also be suitable for subject leaders with mentor responsibilities and Advanced Skills teachers undertaking specialist inset and teaching support.

The book covers the training standards for NQTs and the Induction Standards. But it goes beyond this by fully exploring issues to do with subject knowledge in learning to teach, broadly accepting that an essential element of a secondary teacher’s identity is tied up with the subject taught. The book is divided into three sections:

  • framing the subject – which defines subject knowledge and raises questions about business education and economics as school subjects
  • teaching the subject – which looks at pedagogical, curricular and pupil knowledge
  • business, economics and enterprise within the professional community – which focuses on the place of business education and economics within the wider curriculum and the teaching community.

This book aims to provide stimulating assistance to subject specialists by helping them find ways of thinking about their specialism, how to teach with it and how to engage with what pupils learn through it.
