|Description||This one-day event will enable teachers to plan for the new independent investigation (or non-examined assessment – NEA), a requirement common to all four geography A level specifications. It will enable teachers to: • understand the principles underpinning the NEA • plan fieldwork to encompass the requirements of the NEA • understand the role of the teacher in the NEA process • review and evaluate what makes a good student proposal, using the experience from summer 2017 • consider good primary and secondary sources of data collection • evaluate samples of work, in order to assess standards and get to know the mark scheme well • analyse the implications of the mark scheme for getting the best from students. Because the NEA is a common requirement with standard regulations, this course will suit teachers from any of the four 2016 specifications.|

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.
