Annual January Training

23 01 2013

Every year the education teams of the FSC get together for a whole 5 days at the geographically central Preston Montford Centre, near Shrewsbury. The central position of this learning location helps keep our carbon dioxide emissions to a minimum but still allow valuable face-to-face training activities.

Everyone stays in the residential accommodation, usually occupied by students. Upon awakening on the Tuesday morning we were all treated to a beautiful, snowy, frosty scene. As well as enjoying a good catch up and being thoroughly well fed by the hospitality team, we did a lot of learning.

Image The first half of the week was dedicated to geography and the second half to biology. Our main focuses were keeping up to date with what the exam boards are up to, keeping up to date with the latest technology (ipads and geographical information systems) and also discussing proposed future changes to the curriculum.

Bye for now! Martha
