Thanks Stephen - but I don't think the link will work as its points to a file on your computer!  Looks interesting though!

General Discussion / GA Worldwise International Competition

GA Worldwise International Competition

This is the fourth year of the Geographical Association's international competition designed especially for post 16 geography students. The top four entries in the competition will win places to participate in the International Geography Olympiad 2015 to be held at Tver University, near Moscow in Russia. This year the topic chosen is designed in the context of discussions about the A Level reforms which are talking place. Academics at Universities have had a considerable influence on the proposals, drawing on their ideas about what makes good university students. We feel that by entering this competition the best geographers will be able to show that they are not only excellent A level students but also potentially future university geographers. It also looks good on their UCAS entry.
All you as a teacher needs to do is set the task as a homework, ask the students to submit their essay and wait for the judges to make their decision,  details here.
Unless we can obtain sponsorship for this event, all participants will be asked to pay for transport and accommodation for the iGeo competition. We expect this to amount to around £800 and as such participants should plan to raise funds through their own sponsored events. The written answer must be no longer than 1500 words and should be completed in Arial size 12 font.
The closing date for entries is Friday 14 November 2014. The winners who will be invited to be part of Team UK in Russia will be contacted in December 2014.

General Discussion / Ofsted inspections - clarifications for schools
« on: October 22, 2014, 08:36:40 PM »
Ofsted have recently published guidelines to confirm facts about the requirements of Ofsted and to dispel myths that can result in unnecessary workloads in schools. It should be read alongside the ‘School inspection handbook’, which can be found here:
This document is intended to highlight specific practices that are not required by Ofsted. It is up to schools themselves to determine their practices and for leadership teams to justify these on their own merits rather than by reference to the inspection handbook.

The document is here
