Course overview

This course will explore the most recent guidance on Ofsted inspections and demonstrate how geography departments can use the GA’s Quality Mark process to enable them to be better prepared for future inspections. Delegates will be challenged to evaluate their own work and will share good practice regarding literacy, numeracy and spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development. They will consider the issues faced in demonstrating the progress made by their students and discuss potential solutions.
