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.
