Yr12 – PC Room Task – Case Study Research:

We will complete this task in the computer room tomorrow (Fri 1st Feb)

For you exam you need to have some case studies to show the role of local government in attracting investors. You are going to create two A4 sheets to print. Use the links below to create factsheet 1, and p251 / your own internet research to create factsheet 2.

  • Factsheet 1: Manchester Enterprise Zone / Airport City
  • Factsheet 2: Cambridge Science Park

For each factsheet outline:

  • How local government is involved in the plans
  • Which investors / companies have been attracted by the policies
  • The benefits of this investment and importance of each site globally.

Year 13 Revision

Please find the slides from yesterday’s lesson on the water cycle revision page. They include my plans for the two questions, but remember that there are a number of case studies and different approaches to these questions.

Also remember that if you would like to complete an exam question and send it over, I will mark it and give you some quick feedback if this helps with your revision.
