Subject Benchmark Statement: Earth Sciences, Environmental Sciences and Environmental Studies

Our invited response requests that the Earth Sciences, Environmental Sciences and Environmental Studies statement explicitly acknowledge subject overlap with geography.

We recommend the inclusion of subject bodies as key information providers and highlight the Society's provision of subject choice advice.

Student number controls and teaching funding: Consultation on arrangements for 2012-2014 and beyond

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.
