Geography Subject Leader – An Introduction


This course is designed to help you feel confident leading geography in your class and across the school. We will link subject development to ‘Intent’, ‘Implementation’ and ‘Impact’, and understand how high-quality geography contributes to a wider, coherent curriculum.

We will explore and answer such questions as:

  • How do we develop key geographical concepts in our curriculum?
  • How can we take geographical learning beyond core knowledge?
  • How can we plan with progression in mind?
  • How do we assess the impact of geography teaching and learning on pupils?

You will receive a suite of electronic resources to help you put your subject development plans into action and some practical teaching ideas to take away and share.”
