A level Economics Easter Revision

Ashbourne’s Economics Easter Revision courses run in either morning or afternoon sessions over five day and are taught by Brendan Casey and John Curran. John taught degree-level Economics for 35 years before joining the college. Brendan graduated from London School of Economics, trained as an accountant and worked in the city before joining Ashbourne. He has run a highly successful Economics department at the college for many years. Students will benefit from John and Brendan’s extensive experience as well as from the small group size and individual attention, a key feature of the Easter Revision programme at Ashbourne.

Why Choose Ashbourne College A level Easter revision courses?
Our grandson was very ready to make a huge step from recluse, out­ of ­step with his age group, not knowing what to do with himself or how to relate to others, many of whom he found terrifying. He found travelling on the tube terrifying and trusted few people. Ashbourne has never pushed him too hard but has always encouraged every step he has taken towards what was sometimes a big risk for him. He has learned to respect himself as a learner, to be realistic about his strengths and what he finds difficult, and is learning what to do about the things he finds difficult. He is becoming sociable, well­ informed good company, smiles 100% more than he did and travels to and from Ashbourne by tube without a qualm. He is punctual (or sends a message if held up). He is learning to trust the many good people he now recognises as on his side. He is very aware of how much Ashbourne has contributed to these huge changes and is looking forward to trying out University in September, becoming a student, knowing lots of other people will arrive by different routes. A real success story/work in progress. Thank you Ashbourne
