I find Yacapaca absolutely excellent as far as it goes. I would love to see a varied format of the Q & A. The pupils engage with it very well on the whole but I run out of quizzes to give to the pupils at GCSE level. Actual Chalkface work sheets, I find them invaluable for Key Stage Three Business Studies and again would love some more junior stuff on Yacapaca.

The most useful section for our students is the 'Coursework' part. An excellent guide that will further help us raise our standards.

In light of new research showing the increase in childrens poor eating habits. This is the book I would use in PHSE time to encourage students to choose the healthy options in the canteen. Very useful guide throughout the Keystages.

As the Head of Business Studies and Assistant Head of Year. I'm always looking at ways to improve GCSE results. This pack does just that, and in language that pupils understand.
