CGeog - time to reflect

This week, I completed my CPD log for the continuation of my Chartered Geographer status, which I've held since 2007. This requires the payment of a fee, and the submission of a log of CPD  which has been provided, and also participated in, organised into a number of groups, in the previous year.
You can find out more about becoming a Chartered Geographer here.
Looking back on this year, I've been doing a great deal of activity, particularly writing and editing books for the new GCSE and 'A' levels for Hodder and Cambridge University Press. I've also created a new resource for CILT, which will be launched at the GA conference.
  • I've worked at/in UEA, Oxford University Northumbria University, Wokingham, Leeds, Manchester, Helsinki, Harrogate, Bourne, Hurstpierpoint, Wakefield, Bruges and Sheffield.
  • I've been involved in EU projects: I-USE, GeoCapabilities and GI-Learner.
  • I've worked with INTEL, Norfolk Wildlife Trust, 
  • I've moderated Primary and Secondary Geography Quality Marks for the GA
  • I've completed my 11th year as a member of the GA's Secondary Committee.
And in between I've moved back into full-time teaching once again as Head of KS2/3 Geography, which has been challenging in many ways.
One thing's for sure, 27 years since I started teaching I'm still learning, and am a long way from cracking this thing called teaching...

There's plenty already pencilled in for 2016 too...
