CPD Event from the GA: Managing and assessing the new A level independent investigation (NEA)

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.

London - Thursday 30…
