WJEC's GCSE Geography A specification receives early accreditation
20 June 2012
Following the regulatory authorities’ moves to strengthen the delivery and assessment of GCSE Geography across all awarding organisations, WJEC is delighted to confirm that our GCSE Geography A specification has received early accreditation.
It is available for teaching from September 2012 in both linear and unitised formats. (As is the case across all GCSE subjects, only the linear version is available to centres in England.)
Andy Owen, Subject Officer for GCSE Geography said,
“WJEC GCSE Geography Specification A is a bold and exciting course. It provides students with a stimulating and motivating geography course fit for the 21st century. The course comprises core themes giving a solid foundation of human and physical geography. It also gives teachers an opportunity to select from a range of optional themes including Coasts and Tourism.
“Students will be engaged, challenged and stretched, especially by an emphasis on ‘geographical futures’ which will encourage them to apply their understanding of current trends to identify alternate future scenarios and evaluate their sustainability.”
WJEC Geography B has also been resubmitted for accreditation. We hope to be able to give further news on this specification shortly.
