S2 Business Education

Course Overview

Our S2 course follows the Experiences and Outcomes outlined in A Curriculum for Excellence.

Methodology

We use teacher-led discussion, cooperative group work and many formative assessment strategies to give pupils the opportunity to demonstrate and improve their knowledge, practical skills and skills for learning, life and work.

Assessment

Pupils sit regular tests at the end of each unit of work. The tests assesses knowledge and understanding as well as problem solving skills. 

Homework

Homework is set regularly to support and consolidate classroom experiences. Some homework assignments will require pupils to carry out research in their own time.

Recording and Reporting

The tests form the basis for the comments in the pupil report issued to parents in late February. Test results are also used to inform decisions about suitable progression in S3.
