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.
The next masterclasses are:
- North Yorkshire, Cranedale Centre, 18-20 July 2014. Deadline for applications: 6 June 2014.
- London, RGS-IBG & Olympic Park, 26-28 September 2014. Deadline for applications: 15 August 2014

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.
