Background to this project

The Geographical Association (GA) is working in partnership with ASE to provide free CPD for primary and secondary teachers to develop the critical use of evidence in geography and science classrooms. This free CPD is designed to:

·         strengthen teachers’ subject knowledge and build confidence and capability in curriculum planning and teaching

·         help teachers teach reformed geography and science qualifications and curricula effectively, focusing on knowledge application, the critical use of data and evidence, construction of arguments and geographical and scientific investigation

·         make more efficient use of teacher planning time through provision of practical planning tools and quality-assured curriculum plans and resources.

An extension to the CPD for those completing the core training will focus on the use of data in geography and science, including geo-located and fieldwork data.

The CPD will be available to those working in an Ofsted-rated grade 3 or grade 4 school situated either within one of the DfE’s 12 opportunity areas or within one of its category 5 and 6 local authority districts. Check whether your school is eligible here:
This project is funded by the DfE’s Teaching and Leadership Innovation Fund (TLIF).
