The Geographical Association and Association for Science Education TLIF offer
The Geographical Association and Association for Science Education have been awarded a TLIF contract to provide fully funded CPD for primary and secondary teachers from November 2018 to develop the critical use of evidence in geography and science classrooms. The target group of schools for this offer are those that are in Ofsted category 3, but schools who are Ofsted rated 1 & 2 may be able to get involved.
The aim of this provision will:
- strengthen teachers’ subject knowledge and build confidence and capability in curriculum planning and teaching
- help teachers teach reformed geography and science qualifications and curricula effectively, focusing on knowledge application, the critical use of data and evidence, construction of arguments and geographical and scientific investigation
- make more efficient use of teacher planning time through provision of practical planning tools and quality-assured curriculum plans and resources.
