Online CPD

We've created a number of online training courses for primary teachers and geography co-ordinators which can be followed as whole courses or dipped into as and when required.

My Place, Your Place, Our Place

What do sustainability and community cohesion really mean for learners in primary education? This set of courses explores the relationships between identity and place by drawing on some key geographical processes and understanding.

Primary Subject Leadership

How can primary subject leaders and school management teams 'lead' the development of geography in the curriculum?

Young Geographers Go Local

Learn how to use digital mapping to help children explore their personal geographies in a local context.

Young Geographers Go Global

Helping children to develop their visual literacy by encouraging them to 'read' images of children in other places.

Young Geographers Go Green

What role does geography play in enabling the sustainable agenda in schools to be encountered, developed and enacted?

Further support

If you'd like to chat to other primary geography co-ordinators and subject leaders, why not join the Geography Champions Ning to participate in online discussions and find out about face-to-face meetings in your area.
