Description This course will help you develop stimulating geography teaching and learning that will inspire and enthuse both pupils and members of staff. We will consider what constitutes high-quality geographical knowledge and skills, and how to plan for and evidence it. Taking a wider view, we will investigate how aspects of SMSC and British values can be taught in the context of geography.

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.
