Business Education: A Portrait of Current Practice
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
"Business Education--a portrait of current practice" is one in a series of portraits by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education (HMIE), depicting current practice in key aspects of the Scottish curriculum. The portrait series is a recent initiative by HMIE, flowing from the "Improving Scottish Education" (ISE) report. It is intended to promote improvements in Scottish education by drawing on the findings of inspections to stimulate reflection and debate. This portrait includes case studies of effective practice, which were highlighted at the November 2006 good practice conference in business education. An important purpose of the portrait series is to relate existing pedagogy and curricular provision to the aspirations of "Curriculum for Excellence." By stimulating debate about teaching for effective learning, the portraits will challenge us all to review the extent to which current practice is successfully promoting the four capacities in all young learners. This portrait is based on evidence obtained from HMIE visits to schools during the period 2000 to 2007. These visits included both general inspections and other visits to examine effective practice. Inspectors evaluated the quality of learning, teaching, meeting pupils' needs and achievement. Appended are: (1) HMIE Good Practice in Business Education Conference November 2006; and (2) Overview of business education inspections 2000 to 2007. (Contains 10 tables and 1 footnote.)
