Event Description
This half-day course is designed for subject leaders of primary geography and history who wish to explore ways of reviewing and presenting an overview/rationale for primary geography and history to help effectively capture curriculum intent, implementation and impact in these subject areas in preparation for the September 2019 inspection framework.

This course will provide key subject-specific questions to enable rag rating of the current strengths and areas for development in the school curriculum. Delegates are invited to bring samples of pupils’ work.

Please note: this course is designed as an introduction on how to review and health check an established geography and history curriculum, what to look for and typical pitfalls to avoid. New or current subject leaders who feel they would benefit from a broader single subject-based developmental day may find the full-day course, 'Essentials for new subject leaders' in the first half of the autumn term of more benefit.
