New GCSE new problems

With no foundation for the first time, there are going to be students who will be trying to cope with an extensive and deeper curriculum. Is there anything we can learn from other subjects eg History?

CPD Event from the GA: Global systems and global governance

Together, these topics are a challenging core theme for the new A level Geography Specifications (with first examination in 2018). The Edexcel, AQA, OCR and Eduqas courses all require students to study

(i) how global systems (globalisation, trade and migration) have created interdependent relationships between places and environments 

(ii) how global governance is shaped by global institutions, superpowers and international law.

Professor Klaus Dodds and Dr Simon Oakes give an up-to-date geographic evaluation of the global economic and political issues all geography students need to know about.

Manchester - Tuesday 27 June 2017

London - Thursday 29 June 2017

In particular you will explore planning for skills and progression from GCSE, organising fieldwork to encompass the requirements of the NEA, planning individualised work and the role of the teacher in the NEA, different types of data requirements (primary and secondary, quantitative and qualitative), and the new mark scheme and its implications for getting the best from students.
