CPD Event from the GA: Getting ready for your independent investigation in geography (NEA)

Aimed at Year 12 A level geography students in schools and colleges

This one-day event will enable geography A level students to launch their independent investigation (also known as the NEA). Experienced examiners will offer sessions to help students think through how to select, approach, and complete their own independent study. The combination of lecture and workshop activities will enable students to:

  • consider a wide range of topics for investigation
  • develop a title
  • think about a wide range of data collection strategies
  • consider strategies for analysing geographical data
  • learn how to put together a good proposal form, through reviewing practical examples.

Because the NEA is a common requirement for all A level geography courses, this conference will suit any student who is studying any of the 2016 specifications.

London - Thursday 3 May 2018

CPD event from the GA: Developing essential geographical skills

Aimed at geography students, trainees, early career teachers and NQTs

This one-day conference will support you in developing both your own and your students’ geographical skills. In a world of fake news, the keynote address (by Gapminder) and Workshop 1 will support a fact-based worldview which will encourage students to think critically about global trends and sustainable development. Workshop 2 focuses on developing your own skills by providing practical tips and advice from a recently qualified teacher, while Workshop 3 will provide support to enable the development of students’ spatial, graphical and statistical skills. The day will conclude by reflecting on and identifying the next steps in your professional learning.

CPD Event from the GA: A level revision conference

Aimed at A level students in schools and colleges

This one-day event will enable A level students to kick-start their revision, offering sessions for all four core subject areas of the new A levels. The themes are common to all four English geography A level specifications, as well as WJEC (Wales). It will enable students to learn:

  • key knowledge and understanding in coastal landscapes, water and carbon cycles, changing places, and global governance
  • ‘tricky concepts’ that students sometimes struggle with in examination answers
  • key strategies for revision
  • skills in developing extended writing using guidance from experienced examiners
  • how to tackle questions and meet the requirements of the new mark schemes.

Because the core subject areas are a common requirement for all the A levels, this conference will suit students who are studying any of the 2016 specifications.
