Economic Growth, Development, and Inequality

On this two-day course we will examine the concepts of economic growth or recession, how they are measured and what the impact of either condition is for people on the ground. We will look at why some countries have enjoyed consistently high rates of growth over the past few years, while others have struggled.

Of course, the overall size of the economy doesn’t tell us anything about how wealth and resources are distributed within that system, and we will also look at how inequalities are measured by economists, and what the likely consequences of a high or low rate of inequality are likely to be.

All of our online courses consist of small seminar groups, with lots of opportunities for discussion and debate with peers as well as learning from our expert tutors. This will be a fully live and interactive event, with summary notes and a certificate of attendance issued upon completion of the course.

This style of learning is an excellent preparation for further study, enabling students to make a more informed choice about future study or career options.

‘This course was a great insight into economic growth and inequality. I learned a lot and the group projects are a fun way to interact with other students and continue to learn at the same time.’

‘It was a very informative course which helped me link certain ideas to the real world. I was able to discuss ideas with others and learn new skills as well as new ways of thinking which will really help me throughout my A-level course and degree.’

‘This course was really good for a level students as it touched on knowledge covered on the syllabus but applies it to real world situations and theory that’s useful in real life. There’s lots of opportunities for team work and improving research skills, considering it was a fairly short course.’

‘This course helped me understand some key issues surrounding growth and inequality. The use of case studies and growth models really helped me prepare for my UCAS application and introduced me to new idea that I hadn’t come across.’

‘We had a chance to look at the topics of growth, development and inequality from an economics perspective which goes beyond the curriculum. You can be introduced to new models, case studies and terms which help to enrich your understanding through lectures, discussions and group activities.’

Practical Details

This is a two-day course, running on 24th – 25th October.  Teaching hours on each day will run from 10am till 3.30pm, with a break for lunch, and an independent study task.

This is a live online event, with small seminar groups offering fully interactive classroom discussion and debate (much as you would normally expect from our in-person courses). The event will not be recorded, so it is essential that you are able to attend during the course hours, and that you have a reliable audio and video connection.

The cost of the two-day Economics (Growth, Development, and Inequality) course is £180 per student. As class sizes are small, places are very limited, and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
