Welcome to the AGTA website. Our hope is that this will be a ‘one stop’ package for all your geography needs. Please note that membership is open to ANY geography teacher with reduced rates for those outside of the Auckland region.

Why you should join the AGTA:

The purpose of the AGTA is:

1. To promote, encourage and advance the teaching of and research into Geography.

2. To represent and protect its members’ interests.

3. To produce and disseminate materials.

4. To liaise with other related groups and associations as well as with professional organisations of teachers of Geography.

Joining the AGTA means you can:

* access shared resources contributed by other teachers in the region – there are assessments, activities, games, posters all available for AGTA members

* participate in events run by the AGTA eg professional learning courses, competitions for your students, access to talks for Scholarship students and so much more

* receive up to date information on news from NZQA re geography issues – examinations, internal assessments, moderators etc

* belong to a professional organisation of interesting and fun geography teachers across the Auckland region and throughout New Zealand

* gain advice from other geography teachers

* have an opportunity to talk with others about teaching and learning

* Use of AGTA equipment (free of charge)

* Invitation to professional development cluster meetings

NB:  Becoming an individual member DOES NOT qualify your school as a member.

We hope that belonging to the AGTA will solve those problems  you have due to geographic isolation or some other reason. Please do remember that the AGTA  is a voluntary non-profit organisation that relies on subscriptions  to run courses and offer geographical opportunities for students throughout the year.

The committee consists of hard working teachers who have willingly given up some of their time to help promote the subject. None of us are “experts”, we are teachers just like you, our success therefore depends on the efforts of members suggesting needs for courses, offering resources and letting us know of useful links we can share.

  1. HI Alison

    I have sent a new login Username and password to your email address.

    Not sure what the problem was – let me know if you can do this now.

  2. Hi For some reason I am denied access to the resources on AGTA. I am asked to join AGTA. I understand Tangaroa College is already a member of AGTA.

  4. Hi
    Our school is having difficulty logging on to the site.
    We have changed our password and it still doesn’t work.

  5. Hi
    I seem to be having the same issue as others accessing resources. It shows that I have logged in but I can’t access resources. I suspect our subscription was overlooked at school.


  6. Hi – I have sent requests to access some of the resources in Level 3 Issue Standard – Climate Change Refugees – I can get some but not others. Also – would quite like to see the referencing in Geography post there too, but it comes out in gobbledegook – any ideas?
    Many thanks

  7. Many thanks, Mary, for such a prompt response! Any ideas about the Referencing in Geography post in the same St Cuth’s set? I downloaded it but cannot read it (not in English – sort of like Wingdings!) (:
