The two-day courses are focused on classroom application, with opportunities to share practice internationally.
Each year the GA's International Special Interest Group organises an overseas Study Tour, which aims to introduce geographical educators to key aspects of the contemporary geography of the destination country.
Each course has been written by a primary or secondary geography specialist and comes complete with resources to use in your classroom. The courses cover a range of themes from outdoor learning to food security.
The Field Studies Council (FSC) is offering a series of weekend courses for teachers to develop their fieldwork and learning outside the classroom skills. The range of courses cover several geography topics at GCSE and A level and focus on delivering fieldwork within new exam board specifications.
As part of the GA and FSC strategic partnership an offer is available exclusively to GA Members to book a residential weekend for just £30. This fee includes your accommodation, meals and tuition at an FSC field centre. The courses are led by expert FSC field teachers who deliver outdoor learning full time. Courses will be taking place at different FSC centres around the UK. Log-in to get your voucher code.
