Geography leaders will develop their subject knowledge and an understanding of strong progression and sequencing to support geography curriculum development in their school while gathering inspiring and creative ideas for leading and managing the teaching of outstanding geography.

    The network meetings will take place each full term: Autumn 2023, Spring 2024 and Summer 2024 and include arising themes such as developing fieldwork, assessment, curriculum design and supporting students with SEND.
