|Description||This course will give delegates the opportunity to hear the HMI for Geography draw on findings from Ofsted’s recent curriculum review. Delegates will consider how to embed quality geography within their own schools by exploring the questions: What are you trying to achieve? How do you organise the learning to achieve your aims? and How do you know you have been successful? The afternoon sessions will provide practical teaching strategies from recent Geography Quality Mark schools? and guide teachers in developing their own high quality geography curriculum.|
|Duration||One day course|
|Categories||Secondary, Teaching and Learning, Sciences, KS4, Humanities, Teaching staff, Advanced Skills Teacher, Excellent Teacher, Main-scale (core) teacher, Newly Qualified Teacher, Assessment, Subject Knowledge, Out of school, Earth Science / Geology|

Aims and outcomes
|Evidence underpinning this approach||
All GA resources and approaches have been tried and tested by teachers of geography and course evaluations consistently receive very positive feedback.
|How users/participants can evaluate success||
The course presenters provide strategies for short and longer term evaluation of success and in addition the GA’s Quality Mark framework encourages teachers to critically assess the teaching and learning of geography, identify areas of strength, and set future development goals to further capture the potential of all students studying geography.
|Follow-up activities and support||
The GA provides a wealth of supporting web resources, publications, journals, online CPD and a Quality Mark framework and process for supporting self evaluation.
