Geographical Association

The Geographical Association (GA) is the leading subject association for teachers of geography. Their mission is to ‘further geographical knowledge and understanding through education’. The Association has over a century of innovation behind it and an unrivalled understanding of geography teaching.

The GA supports geography education by providing a specialist community of practice for teachers to share ideas with one another. They support teachers’ professional needs through journals, publications, training courses, Annual Conference, Quality Marks, teaching resources, social media activity and a variety of local and national network activities, including face-to-face and virtual networking.

The GA also represents the views of geography teachers and demonstrates the value of geographical education more widely, for example through their Manifesto for geography. They advocate for geography teachers with government and others, and have a strategic vision to be ‘the trusted voice for geography in education’.

The GA has several thousand personal and institutional memberships. These include primary and secondary teachers, trainee teachers, teacher educators, academics, geography undergraduates, infant, primary and secondary schools, colleges, universities, libraries, societies, museums and businesses. Despite being a UK based organisation, they have members in more than 60 countries and strong links with geographical organisations around the world.
