This hands-on course uses the outdoor environment as the inspiration to develop your geography curriculum. The National Curriculum states that geography should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world that remains with them for the rest of their lives; what better way to achieve this than by immersing pupils in real-world geography outside of the classroom? The course will provide numerous ideas for engaging fieldwork and will increase teachers’ confidence in getting out of the classroom.
Registration fees include all course materials, refreshments and lunch.
