We actively introduce students to the many exciting and relevant benefits of studying geography, widening their perception of the subject and encouraging them to pursue it beyond the compulsory stages. We do it by presenting the wide range of career options and working with undergraduate, postgraduate and graduate geographers from universities and organisations to act as Ambassadors for geography in the classroom and beyond.
Through the Alexander Awards Summer School, we have also supported students from across the UK to participate in a fully funded geographical fieldwork summer school at the end of their first year of A Level and Higher Studies. The focus has been to support students who may not, through a range of circumstances, have had the opportunity to participate in a high quality residential fieldwork before and who would benefit most from such an experience.

The Geography for all project will work with colleagues and organisations across the geographical community. It will help address equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the subject, with a focus on under-representation by income and ethnicity through the following:
Pilot, evaluate and share direct work with young people that are under-represented in geography to better support their achievement and aspirations through the subject.
Establish a network of geography teachers to particularly support the capacities of geography teacher trainees and early career geography teachers in addressing EDI within their practice.
Engage with, and support, the potential involvement of universities and employers to better promote and support pathways into higher education and the workplace for geography students.
