HelloI have set up a OneDrive folder with about 10GB of shared resources in for the new Edexcel GCSE course.I am teaching the Human paper, so that's what's there now.I would welcome any additions…Continue
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.

Aimed at teachers of post-16 students in schools and colleges
It will consider the principles underpinning the NEA and what these might mean for post-16 fieldwork. 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.
