Careers in Geography - Geography in Careers
This area of the GA website has been created to help you explore geography-related careers with your students including jobs that use geographical skills, jobs that are affected by geography and jobs that exist because of geography. It contains lesson ideas and resources, career case studies and job hunting activities suitable for Key Stages 3-4.
Geography is a dynamic and relevant subject for all young people:
Geography inspires pupils to become global citizens by exploring their own place in the world, their values and responsibilities to other people, to the environment and to the sustainability of the planet
These are all incredibly important, but many students don't realise that geography also equips them with a broad range of personal learning and thinking skills (PLTs) such as teamwork, independent enquiry and creative thinking - all highly valued by employers.
Make sure your students are aware of the many benefits of studying geography, and the variety of career opportunities it opens up, by embedding impartial careers education within your curriculum.
The resources here can be used in several contexts, from whole geography lessons to five-minute starters to option time activities. Many of them can be easily adapted for use with other subjects such as ICT or Science or work well as cross-curricular resources.
