Learning & Leading Fieldwork Masterclass Weekends
Innovative Geography Teaching Grants


Well-planned, safe, high quality fieldwork can benefit students' learning and personal development.  The Society provides teachers with advice on planning fieldwork.  We also offer hands-on support through fieldwork masterclass weekends in locations across the UK.  

Fieldwork Masterclass Weekends

Twice each academic year, we offer 16 geography teachers free places on residential weekend masterclasses. All course fees, accommodation and meals are covered. These courses are aimed at those working in maintained schools that face challenges in their provision of geography. It aims to support teachers who want to improve their field teaching skills at A Level and GCSE. Each course focuses on either human or physical geography fieldwork.


Details of our course dates for 2015 will be published soon.

For further information, download the guidance notes and course programmes below or contact Charlie Eustace, the Learning and Leading Project Coordinator by email on landl@rgs.org or telephone: 0207 7591 3180.

What will I be doing on the master-class?

You will undertake field visits, gather case studies, enhance your field teaching skills, share experiences, participate in different techniques and approaches, develop teaching resources for A Level and GCSE and adapt them for your local area.
