Geography Subject Leaders
These pages provide support for non-specialist primary geography co-ordinators and subject leaders. You'll find information and resources about your role and responsibilities, a staged plan for taking over as geography co-ordinator, tips on what should be in your subject leader's file plus book reviews, weblinks and activity ideas.
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.
