PebblePad is an educational platform that allows schools and universities to aid teachers and students with the classroom experience through the use of portfolios. PebblePad is used in more than a hundred institutions and organizations all over the world.
Quality Mark is a strategy to further improve the teaching of Geography in both primary and secondary schools. It is awarded by Geographical Association to schools that have met the high standard.
Schools that are interested in achieving the Primary Geography Quality Mark (PGQM) or the Secondary Geography Quality Mark (SGQM) should register on PebblePad and go through a series of processes.
As soon as the school registers, the framework of both PGQM and SGQM are available to see the criteria that need to be met. There is also a Centre of Excellence status which acts as a free and optional addition that can award a school with its highest status.
