I have been approached by a few individuals/schools locally as they wondered if I would support them in the establishment of a PGQM cluster group, so that they can brainstorm ways to present evidence and share ideas of possible teaching and learning activities.
If you are applying for the PGQM this academic year (2015-2016) and are based in Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire or Worcestershire, then do leave a comment below or send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
It is likely that our first cluster group meeting will take place one morning during the first or second week of Term 3.

We have just commissioned an online study resource for you - suitable for KS3, GCSE and A Level and written by two leading Geography teachers David Rogers and Simon Ross.
Everything you and your students ever wanted to know about Iceland's famously unpronounceable volcano - even how to say it!
You will have access to case study material, classroom lessons covering topics from tourism to plate tectonics and managing natural hazards. Video footage of the eruption and its impact, several maps and diagrams and all this combined with stunning imagery to bring the eruption to life.
