Description Join us to develop your understanding of geography's core skills and knowledge. Aligned with the 2019 Ofsted framework, this course will support you in successfully leading a subject that: plans with intent; implements with collective expertise and reflective best practice: and constantly assesses for impact. You will explore how to stimulate geographical learning that is relevant, authentic and progressive in order to raise the standard of teaching and learning in the subject. The session will also examine how real world geography engages pupils in their own learning across the entire curriculum and whole-school initiatives, such as: global learning, sustainability, values and learning outside the classroom.

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.
