The IEA has a substantial events programme, hosting over 100 events a year. Students and teachers are very welcome to attend all our public events, but the IEA also holds special events designed specifically for students and teachers of A-level economics.
These events are intended to introduce students to the ideas at the heart of the IEA’s mission, to increase their understanding of them, and to encourage intellectual debate and discussion in a friendly and welcoming environment. As well as featuring IEA staff, events often involve lectures, presentations and discussion by leading scholars and figures from the worlds of economics, politics and the media
Sixth Form Student Conference:
We run regular Regional Sixth Form Student Conferences in partnership with schools all over the country. These events are intended for both A Level Students and their teachers and are run throughout the year. We are holding 18 of these conferences at schools around the country over the next twelve months with more already planned for after then. If you are not receiving details of these in our regular mailings to schools then please contact Christiana Hambro with your contact details.
Hear from some of the world’s leading economists on the prospects for the economic recovery, gain an insight into the government’s key challenges and spending priorities and learn about the likely impact of economic policy for your organisation. The IEA's State of the Economy conference is a unique opportunity to hear forecasts for the UK economy in a global context from leading economists and policymakers. The event is essential for anyone with a vested interest in the performance of the UK and Global economies.
The State of the Economy Conference is one of our flagship events, predominantly aimed at those in the business world. However, limited bursaries for students and teachers are available to allow them to attend for a heavily discounted price. Applications for 2013 bursary places are now closed.
A-level/IB Teacher Seminars:
The IEA runs an annual program of three, one-day seminars for teachers of A-level and IB economics. These are held at the IEA offices in London. Each session follows a current key theme in the international economics discussion, and seminars are led by top economists and academics. The next of these seminars is taking place on Tuesday 10 September on the topic of ‘Labour Markets, Regulation and Unemployment’. The speakers will be Professors Philip Booth (IEA), Len Shackleton (Buckingham), and Stanley Siebert (Birmingham). Please contact Christiana Hambro to reserve a place.
