Geoscience Education Academy - 25-28 July 2017


Free training for UK teachers

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.
