Title: Govt-funded free Geog Association training: "Critical Thinking For Achievement"
Post by: kit.rackley on November 18, 2018, 04:53:21 PM
Hi all,

You may or may not have been made aware of a free nation-wide CPD opportunity from the Geographical Association regarding "Critical Thinking for Achievement". I'm running the training for teachers in Norfolk and Suffolk, but I’m finding that word isn’t getting around, or that aspects about it are getting lost in translation.

So please can I have your help to promote this and share in your networks? It's not often we get direct funding from the DfE to deliver training for free - and simply, if we don't use it, we'll lose it.

Schools rated OFSTED 3 or 4 in the Govt's 12 Opportunity Areas or in the DfE's Cat 5/6 districts have priority. Schools rated 1 or 2 within those target areas are welcome to register and may be given places if circumstances merit.

If want further official details from the GA, see here: https://www.geography.org.uk/Critical-thinking-for-achievement/ (https://www.geography.org.uk/Critical-thinking-for-achievement/)

If you are in Norfolk or Suffolk, you can sign up for the training I'll be delivering at the University of East Anglia (UEA) here: http://www.wemcouncil.org/wp/event/teacher-cpd-critical-thinking-part-1-on-behalf-of-the-ga/ (http://www.wemcouncil.org/wp/event/teacher-cpd-critical-thinking-part-1-on-behalf-of-the-ga/)

The training is available to our primary colleagues too, so please share with via your cluster links.

Thanks in advance!
