Government alcohol strategy

Our response highlights geographies of alcohol consumption, drawing on an RGS-IBG policy conference and brief in 2010.

Reformed GCSE subject content consultation

Our response welcomes a clearer progression in content and framework from Key Stage 1 - 3 to GCSE. We also suggest formalising requirements for quantitative skills in geography, and the use of short annual fieldwork returns.

Enhancing the impact of social research on policy

Our response offers examples of how the Society's work can support interaction between policymakers and researchers, and suggests approaches that can enable interdisciplinary cooperation.

GCSE reform consultation (Ofqual)

In response to the Ofqual consultation, we argue for the continuation of the Ebac, and recommend more opportunities for extended writing, maths and statistics work in GCSE geography. We also express concern over lower grades generally awarded to early entry students in 2013.
