Why do fieldwork?
Meet the participants »


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 free places for teachers on residential weekend master-classes. All course fees, accommodation and meals are covered. These are aimed at supporting teachers from maintained schools facing challenges.


The next masterclasses are:

  • North Yorkshire, Cranedale Centre, 18-20 July 2014
  • London, RGS-IBG & Olympic Park, Autumn Term 2014-TBC

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.
