Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students Each participant taking part will:
• Develop up-to-date knowledge on migration in line with the new GCSE and A Level specifications
• Consider global, national and regional challenges of population change in talks from Oxfam, and the cultural, sociological and economic consequences
• Explore ways to bring migratory flows to life with creative tasks to take back to the classroom
• Explore progression from KS3 to KS4 and 5

This day is for you if:
• You would like to fresh ideas to engage students with the issues around migration
• You want to develop your knowledge of specific case studies
• You want to help students to evaluate issues created by global population change
• You want to gain resources and activities to use in class for this topic and beyond
Evidence underpinning this approach This course provides subject-knowledge enhancement from experts in the field, as well as teacher-facilitated discussion on best practice when teaching the topic. The Sutton Trust identified the strongest evidence for what makes a great teacher as being:

1) Teachers' subject content knowledge, including their ability to understand how students think about a subject and identify common misconceptions
2) Quality of instruction
How users/participants can evaluate success Participants will fill in evaluation forms on the day regarding the achievement of the aims of this course.
Follow-up activities and support We will send you postcards that you have written on the day as a follow up from the event. The postcards contain points on what you found inspiring and what you will do differently in lessons as a result of the CPD Day.
Details Led by practising teachers, who are joined by subject experts, this one-day course provides a wealth of ideas from which to create enriching and challenging teaching resources.
