The Geoscience Education Academy (GEA) offers UK teachers a great opportunity to understand how to teach the Geoscience part of the curriculum if it is not their principal subject, as well as existing Earth science teachers who may need a refresher and some new material.
Now in its seventh year, the GEA provides curriculum led training and support for science and geography teachers across the UK. Held at the Geological Society, Burlington House, London, this course is completely FREE to attend with all travel reimbursed and accommodation included.
With training given by experienced teachers/ examiners, the GEA is a fully accredited CPD training course. A complete pack of teaching resources is available to all attendees.
The 2017 Geoscience Education Academy will run from Tuesday 25 to Friday 28 July. Applications are now open - apply online or download a form. Places are limited and are awarded on the basis of suitability.
We have a private group on LinkedIn for past GEA delegates to stay in touch.
