Secondary Geography

The Geography Teacher Educators’ (GTE) Conference takes place in January each year. The conference brings together university-based and school-based GTEs from near and far to exchange ideas, discuss research and debate current issues within geography education.

The next GTE Conference is being held in York from the afternoon of Friday 26 to lunchtime on Sunday 28 January. This is an in-person conference, so provides the opportunity for attendees to network and discuss ideas.

The aim is to share best practice ideas and current research being done in geography education including master’s level and other initiatives and project work, relevant to training geography teachers. We particularly welcome presentations from those new to their roles as geography educators, whilst also encouraging attendees keen to network and share ideas informally to attend.
