The impact of exiting the European Union on higher education

Our submission to the Education Committee states the importance of international collaboration in education, and highlights the importance of EU staff and students to geographical research in the UK.

The Draft Education Inspection Framework

We strongly support the introduction of a ‘quality of education’ judgement and the publication of Ofsted subject reviews. We also comment on the wording of Intent, Implementation and Impact statements.

Degree Classification: Transparent, Consistent and Fair academic Standards

In our response to the QAA consultation, we do not support the idea of an external advisor on academic standards, and note that proposed classification descriptors should be related to Subject Benchmark Statements.

Evidence submitted to the Primary Review (Rose Review)

Our evidence submission advocates for the role of geography in education, and the timetabled provision of geography in primary schools.
