Following the cancellation of this summer’s exams due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Department for Education and Ofqual have opened a consultation on how GCSE and A Level grades should be assessed and awarded in 2021.
The Society recognises the challenges that geography teachers and their pupils are facing over this exam cycle. We encourage teachers to respond to the consultation to make their thoughts known, especially on issues that are particularly relevant to geography such as the role of the NEA in awarding grades at A Level.
Looking beyond this exam cycle, the Society will also be highlighting the vital need for fieldwork to return as a full requirement for future GCSE and A Level geography courses.
The consultation closes at 11.45pm on Friday 29 January.
A new report exploring the career destinations of graduates highlights the increasingly vital need for geographers in the graduate job market.
We caught up with 2020 Ness Award recipient Nancy Campbell to discuss what the award meant to her.
We caught up with two of our previous Geographical Award recipients, Dwayne Fields and Mark Evans MBE, to discuss what the award meant to them.
Applications are now open for a PhD studentship on the Society’s Collections, as part of our Collaborative Doctoral Awards programme.
