Welcome to the Teacher Education (GTIP) Area
This part of the GA website is designed to support geography teacher educators. It provides a wealth of ideas, resources, reading lists and weblinks. Some parts of GTIP, particularly the Think Pieces and the Library, may be of interest to a wider audience of mentors, teachers and PGCE students and to geography teacher educators in other countries.
Teachers are the key levers in ensuring success and our professional network of teachers provides a rich diet of advice, resources and professional development. This section of the website is designed to support you to become a high quality teacher with enthusiasm, understanding and passion.
