The Society is delighted to have received further funding from the Nuffield Foundation to continue and develop our Data Skills in Geography programme into 2019. The project, which initially launched in 2015, provides an integrated programme across both higher education institutions and schools to improve teachers’ and students’ knowledge and confidence in using data skills.
The Data Skills project has already produced a series of award winning, high quality teaching materials for both GCSE and A Level to support the new curricula, including lesson plans, activities and resource materials, alongside providing a national programme of continuing professional development (CPD) for teachers.
Now with further funding, the project will continue to provide CPD and teaching resources, extend our work with awarding organisations, develop new activities with Initial Teacher Training providers and others to promote the value of data skills in geography, and build up a network of ‘Data Champions’ (teachers who have been involved with the programme) to encourage activity and collaboration at local level.
The programme aims to ensure that both teachers and students in all schools can benefit from greater confidence in using data skills. We are excited about the future prospects for the Data Skills programme and what it can continue to achieve.
