Our response to the green paper on industrial strategy pays particular attention to the role of social sciences in developing skills, and the need for a geographical/spatial basis to regional development planning.

Strengthening QTS and improving career progression for teachers

We welcome the review and strongly support the proposal for a strengthened early career content framework and CPD. We also advocate for a two-year induction period.

A Level and AS geography consultation on conditions and guidance

We do not support the separation of AS and A Level Geography, or external assessment (as opposed to moderation) of of non-exam assessment. We welcome the 80:20 balance of assessment proposed.
