This year’s cohort of Geography Scholars kick-started their teacher training year with a fieldwork residential earlier this month.
The Scholars headed to Juniper Hall Field Centre for two days of training and continuing professional development before they start their teacher training courses in September. The programme, put together by Field Studies Council staff at Juniper Hall, was a mix of both physical and human geography and included fieldwork on rivers, and the carbon and water cycles, which the Scholars will now be able to translate into fieldwork with their own students. Using GIS in the classroom and risk assessments were also covered.
A Scholar Training Day, for those who couldn’t make the residential, will take place in October and another fieldwork day will take place in January 2019.
