    CPD Local CPD networks in London

    As part of the Rediscovering London's geography project, new local networks for primary and secondary geography teachers are being established across ten boroughs. The networks are designed to support the teaching and learning of geography across primary and secondary, particularly as we lead up to the implementation of the new National Curriculum in September 2014. They will:

    • Connect across primary and secondary schools
    • Involve academy, free, maintained and independent sectors
    • Hold half termly meetings to engage local teachers with the wider programme, its outputs and dissemination
    • Help teachers to produce challenging lessons, rooted in up-to-date research, focussing on geographical subject knowledge
    • Run specific CPD to provide subject knowledge updates for key areas of curriculum and a range of geographical techniques and approaches
    • Provide training on local fieldwork to highlight the relevance of the geography within London, and also trianing on fieldwork in further afield locations
    • Provide online assessment tools through which pupils’ progress can be monitored

    Current networks running:

    • Havering
    • Bromley
    • Islington
    • Enfield
    • Further networks are being set up from summer 2014

    If you are interested in joining a London network please contact Bryony Collins. Find out more about the Rediscovering London's geography project.
