Improving provision and outcomes in Geography and History: EYFS-Year 6

This one-day online training programme will focus on raising pupil achievement in Geography and History through designing and teaching a high quality curriculum which is relevant, engaging and progressively more challenging in terms of outcomes. 


By the end of the day all colleagues will:

  • Understand the key elements of planning a curriculum in Geography and History which is ambitious, knowledge rich and progressively more challenging in terms of subject outcomes - 'intent'
  • Have considered how most effectively to engage and inspire children as young geographers and historians through big question led sequential enquiries - 'implementation'
  • Recognise how the assessment of knowledge, understanding and skills acquisition in Geography and History can be undertaken in a manageable and accurate way - 'impact'
  • Having trialled learning enquiries in Geography and History which model and exemplify these key principles

Feedback from previous training by David has included:

A fantastic thought provoking engaging course with many useful resources and ideas for an enquiry led curriculum in history.  Can’t wait for the geography one!

Entertaining, informative and useful.  A passion for teaching and history was evident throughout.  David’s enthusiasm was infectious.  

Fantastic course which has inspired me to go back and implement so much in my school.

After becoming a new teacher recently, this day has literally changed my outlook on teaching.  Before today I was struggling to fit in my scheme of work but after listening to David I now understand what is required -eternally grateful. 10/10.  

David Weatherly is a brilliant trainer – having been to all his Geography courses, they just get better and better.

A very engaging course leader.  It is fantastic to have a course led by someone who is still fully involved in education and has a fantastic plethora of experience.

A fantastic, inspirational course which, as a deputy and English subject leader, I found matched what we want to do in school perfectly. A wonderful antidote to today's educational 'policy' - thank you so much. 

This training is suitable for EYFS - KS2 primary phases. 


This training will now be provided ONLINE due to current government guidelines.
