Supporting Irish Leaving Certificate Students is an online resource for Leaving Cert Business, Economics and Accounting students and teachers. Developed by Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI) in conjunction with the Business Studies Teachers’ Association of Ireland (BSTAI) the site provides a number of learning resources for use by teachers and students in the classroom or at home. These resources have been identified by the BSTAI as tools which can provide valuable support in teaching and learning the senior cycle business subjects. The content on the site is written and assessed by experienced teachers with the assistance of BPFI’s Economist and will be regularly updated with new material each school term.

European Money Week

European Money Week is an annual initiative promoting financial education across Europe. The week is organised by national banking associations across Europe, including Banking & Payments Federation Ireland, under the coordination of the European Banking Federation.

Exam Q&As

In this section we cover key topics from Leaving Cert Business and Economics to help you achieve the best at your exam. Topics are introduced and supported by professionally worked out questions and answers.
