The Society supports innovation in teaching geography at secondary and higher education level.
The Society offers several Awards for school teachers. The 'From the Field' Goldsmiths' Award offers bursaries of £500 to secondary school teachers to work alongside researchers at the cutting edge of geographical research to develop educational resources for the classroom. The Learning & Leading Fieldwork Masterclass Weekends for teachers aim to develop the field teaching skills of participants. The Innovative Geography Teaching Grants offer two awards of £1,000 for geography teachers at secondary level to create imaginative and innovative teaching materials.
The Ray Y Gildea Jr Award is a single annual award of £1,000, to support one innovative teaching project. The deadline for this award is to be confirmed.
