Course Information

All secondary trainees receive 2 hours of subject training per week, led by a highly experienced subject leader, who has a strong track-record of outstanding results in schools in the GORSE Academies Trust. Within our Geography subject knowledge sessions, we very much focus on the development and enhancement of subject knowledge, examination rubric and teaching & learning. We focus on identifying areas of subject knowledge that trainees
have identified as being areas for development. Using the context and content of the National Curriculum and Key Stage 4 specifications as starting points, we ensure that knowledge and traditional subject disciplines are being sufficiently embedded so that they can be effectively imparted onto students, who can in turn apply this knowledge and understanding successfully. Developing our disciplinary literacy pervades our curriculum and
is referenced throughout our subject knowledge sessions.

There is a recognition that many trainees will go on to secure placements or employment in post-16 settings and therefore readying trainees for the demands of Key Stage 5 teaching is also reflected within our course. It is also important to us that trainees leave every session with tangible activities that can then be implemented within their lesson planning. Geography is a dynamic subject and so keeping well informed about current affairs and global events is also a common theme running throughout our sessions.
