We are pleased to offer your schools remote training sessions. To book a place, click on the training tab.

Led byOur Expert Geography Lead
DetailsOur programme covers two half day sessions and will be delivered by our Expert Geography Lead.

Session 1 - Monday 28th February 2022
• Intent and implementation.
• Local studies
• Field work
• Practical resources.

In this session we will focus on skills needed to be an effective Subject Leader. We will think carefully about our role and how we can drive a subject within our school, how we identify targets and how we include these in our intent.
We will focus on the curriculum design, thinking carefully about what is taught, where and why. We will explore what current OFSTED findings say and how we can use this.
Time will be given to reflect on your school's intent and how ambitious this is. This will lead onto discussions about implementation and what this looks like for your school.

Session 2 - Monday 9th May 2022
• Impact. How do you know?
• What OFSTED say
• Deep dive, possible questions

In this session we will reflect on any findings from the previous session. We will share ideas on how to support our staff in delivering a knowledge rich Geography curriculum directly linked to the national curriculum and your role as a Subject Lead within this.
Think carefully about the Impact of Geography and how we know. We will reflect on how diverse the curriculum is and how this contributes to children's cultural capital, thinking carefully about how we can ensure diversity and opportunity for all children happens within Geography.
And finally a look at some possible questions and troubleshooting answers that we may come across in a Geography deep dive inspection
