Having been appointed Secretary of State for Education last week, one of Nicky Morgan’s first moves was to announce new proposals for the content of A Level geography. The Society welcomes these proposals, which are open for consultation until 19 September.
The proposals are based on recommendations made by a panel of geography experts, appointed by the A Level Content Advisory Board (ALCAB) in February 2014. The panel was chaired by Professor Martin Evans, Head of Geography at the University of Manchester, and included Dr Rita Gardner, the Society’s Director.
The Society believes:
In light of these proposals for revised A Level geography content, examinations inspectorate Ofqual has also launched a consultation on the assessment of A Level geography. The closing date for responses to this consultation is 22 September.
