Urban environments, including our local area, offer diverse, dynamic settings packed full of 'living geography' and stimulating contexts for purposeful geographical enquiry, no matter what the weather or season. This practical course will explore the use of urban areas for primary geography fieldwork, update your geography know-how and demonstrate how to meet the fieldwork requirements in the geography National Curriculum.

This interactive course supports ways of developing pupils’ global awareness and understanding within the primary geography curriculum. It examines the challenges posed by global learning, and looks in-depth at some practical thematic and place-based examples linked to the 2014 National Curriculum which will lead to outstanding geography teaching.

This one-day event will enable teachers to plan for the new independent investigation (or non-examined assessment – NEA), a requirement common to all four geography A level specifications. It will enable teachers to:

•   understand the principles underpinning the NEA
•   plan fieldwork to encompass the requirements of the NEA
•   understand the role of the teacher in the NEA process
•   review and evaluate what makes a good student proposal, using the experience from summer 2017
•   consider good primary and secondary sources of data collection
•   evaluate samples of work, in order to assess standards and get to know the mark scheme well
•   analyse the implications of the mark scheme for getting the best from students.

Because the NEA is a common requirement with standard regulations, this course will suit teachers from any of the four 2016 specifications.
