The IEA has a long history of providing assistance and events for students of A Level Economics and their teachers. We have now expanded this part of our programmes and we are looking to further develop it in the future.
We have a number of events for teachers, most notably our programme of one day seminars for teachers with invited speakers, held three times a year at the IEA offices. Click here for more information.
Each year we hold the Annual Essay Competition for the Dorian Fisher Memorial Prize, with a prize of £500 for the winner, three prizes of £250 each for the runners up, and a prize of £250 for the school with the largest number of entries. There is also an event in the Autumn for the prize winners and those who placed in the top 10% of entries along with their family and teachers.
We also provide supplementary teaching and reading material for students taking A Level and IB economics, based on the syllabi of the main exam boards while adding the IEA’s perspective on the issues involved:
