About the GA Consultants Scheme

GA members are a rich resource of expertise. The GA's publications, journals, web-based resources, CPD events and GA Annual Conference are all made possible through the involvement of GA members who offer their knowledge and experience for others to share. Often this is done informally, for example through the GA's branches and online networks. For more formal CPD the GA has established a growing register of GA Consultants who can be contacted to provide specialist advice.  

Many of the GA Consultants (there are now over 100 around the UK) are available, subject to other commitments, to give talks on a variety of topics related to the teaching and learning of geography. Audiences include special schools, secondary and primary schools, community groups, colleges, societies, businesses and councils.

GA Consultants can offer a variety of specialist topics such as curriculum development, GIS, fieldwork, global issues, sustainability and risk assessment. Presentations may include talks, lectures, workshops or seminars. The GA is committed to reflective and enquiry led forms of CPD. GA Consultants are encouraged to involve their audiences through question and answer sessions and discussion. Participants should come away with ideas and tools for further action and self development.

Each consultant has to apply formally to join the GA Consultants register and applications are vetted by a panel comprising the GA's Chief Executive, GA President and Chair or Vice Chair of the GA Education Committee. You can be confident that the GA will provide you, your school or your organisation with a highly qualified and experienced presenter. For more details about how GA Consultants register and apply view this further information.

'Many thanks to you for contacting your consultants to help with our new BBC series. We were inundated and were VERY spoilt for choice. I really appreciate your help. We may well need more help later on, but for the moment, we feel confident that we are in good hands.'
- Jacqui Doughty, Senior Producer, Walk Tall Media Ltd
