Minister for Education and Skills, Jan O’Sullivan TD, has today launched, a new online resource for teachers and students of Leaving Certificate Business and Economics.

Developed by Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI) in conjunction with the Business Studies Teachers’ Association of Ireland (BSTAI), the site provides a number of learning resources for use by teachers and students in the classroom or at home.  These resources have been identified by the BSTAI as tools which can provide valuable support in teaching and learning the senior cycle business subjects.

The content on the site is written and assessed by experienced business teachers; and the factual economic indicator material is compiled by BPFI’s Economist. It will be regularly updated with new material each school term and there are also future plans to include resources for Accounting.

Welcoming the new resource, the Minister for Education and Skills, Jan O’Sullivan TD said: “ is a great new resource for students and teachers which will no doubt be of immense value throughout the school year and in preparation for exams. The study of business and economics by our students is vital to developing the future health of our country’s economy and I commend both BPFI and the BSTAI in working to produce this resource and would encourage all business teachers and students to use and take advantage of the support it provides.”
