The Chalfonts Community College
Date of Visit: 15th November 2005
This conference was organsied by Fiona Glen.
“You came to The Astley Cooper school last year to run a conference for my yr 12 AS Business Studies students. I am now at a different school and delivering applied business courses. Are you able to organise a conference relating to AS coursework units for Applied Business?”
Often people assume that ONLY A levels Economics and Business Studies can be delievered. This is not true – anything within the Business/Economics field (including BTEC, professional courses, GCSE, specific options) can be supplied. In addition courses in Study Skills and courses for teachers/examiners can be booked!

- 11.10 am – 11.30 am break
- 11.30 am – 3.40 pm – Unit 6 students are in and out of other lessons so could come to the conference as and when available
- Lunch 1.10 pm – 2.00 pm
Comments from the pupils include: “I enjoy the real-life examples given by the tutor”, “Very interesting, helped a lot”, and “I really enjoyed the conference!”. For this conference there were two speakers which meant we could split up into two groups, thus allowing pupils to present their business ideas.
As always the Dystonia Society poster was on display
