The GA Rex Walford Geography Student Teacher Award recognises inspirational and innovative geography teaching practice (at primary or secondary level) developed by an individual during their period of ITE. It takes its cue from Rex’s remarkable contribution to geography ITE in the UK over many years.
An idea of the high regard in which Rex was held can be gained from the many testimonials and memories on the GA website. We read of a man of unquenchable enthusiasm and optimism, and a highly gifted teacher.
Applicants produce a poster to offer insight of curriculum making and its application to classroom practice in the primary or secondary phase. Submitted posters will be displayed at the 2024 GA Annual Conference Exhibition and the winning poster will be published in the 2024 Summer issue of GA Magazine.
We hope this award will encourage, inspire and remind us all of what can be achieved through innovative and imaginative geography teaching.
Please note submissions are now closed – the deadline was 31 August at 5.00pm.
The submission deadline is 5.00pm on Thursday 31 August 2023. Nomination forms should be sent to the GA Executive Assistant Ricky Buck by email or post: The Geographical Association, 160 Solly Street, Sheffield S1 4BF.
