You'll be knowledgeable about curriculum change, effective teaching strategies and subject leadership, have recent classroom experience and a proven track record in raising achievement through educational projects and initiatives. Above all you'll share the GA's views on the importance of geography in education and have the drive and vision to support the GA’s charitable mission to ‘further geographical knowledge and understanding through education’.
