GA receives DfE funding for teacher CPD

Critical thinking for achievement

The GA is delighted to announce that, from autumn 2018, the Association will be funded by the Department for Education (DfE) Teaching and Leadership Innovation Fund (TLIF) to provide free CPD for primary and secondary teachers to develop the critical use of evidence in geography and science classrooms.

Under the Critical thinking for achievement project, the GA will be working alongside our project partner the Association for Science Education, to:

  • strengthen teachers’ subject knowledge and build confidence and capability in curriculum planning and teaching
  • help teachers teach reformed geography and science qualifications and curricula effectively, focusing on knowledge application, the critical use of data and evidence, construction of arguments and geographical and scientific investigation
  • make more efficient use of teacher planning time through provision of practical planning tools and quality-assured curriculum plans and resources.
