I would like to take part in CPD that gave an overview of the new Geography GCSE specs and teaching- when is there likely to be a course on this? Thanks in advance.

Dear Sorrell

We will be holding events on the new GCSE geography specifications at various locations around the country during the 2015 summer term. The new specifications will also be featured in lectures and workshops taking place at our Annual Conference. The Conference takes place from 9-11 April at the University of Manchester. Programme information will be available during December.
