"Genuinely the most important, most exciting INSET I have ever attended...a world of opportunities!"
- Geography teacher at our Introduction to Esri ArcGIS Online course, March 2014 

"This has been the most enjoyable, entertaining and useful learning experience I have ever been on in my 8 year career."
- Teacher at our Fieldwork CPD weekend, 2012

"Because of the Digimap (training) we're now doing a lot more mapping of the school and the area around the school - that's been really good."

Booking details
Booking for this event is now open. This event is ticketed and tickets will need to be shown by both students and teachers on the door. Tickets can be requested by emailing Harpreet at
h.sanghera@rgs.org. We are asking schools to please be reasonable with the amount of tickets they request for these free lectures. In order to prevent block booking by schools that subsequently do not use their full ticket allocation, thus stopping other schools from attending, we will be closely monitoring the use of the tickets we provide to each school. If we find that your school has booked far more tickets than it uses on the day, we may be forced to limit your school’s ticket allocation at future School Member lectures.
