Aimed at primary geography teachers and geography subject leaders

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.
