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 masterclass is:
