We are delighted to be a supporter of the Gender Action Schools Award, an initiative which promotes and supports a whole-school approach to challenging stereotypes, and ensuring all young people can reach their full potential.
Geography has the potential to engage all students in studies about the world’s people, places and environments, and it has a strong track record of recruiting almost equal numbers of female and male students into GCSEs, A Levels and undergraduate degrees.
However, there is more that can be done to ensure that both female and male pupils can participate fully in the subject, for example its requirements to undertake fieldwork can be an issue for some groups of pupils. Head of Education and Outdoor Learning at the Society, Steve Brace, said: “If future generations are to positively tackle the key challenges facing our societies and environments they will need to be geographically literate and knowledgeable about their world. Studying geography achieves this by helping both girls and boys better understand the world’s people, places and environments. The Society is delighted to support the Gender Action programme to help underpin this entitlement for all young people, regardless of their gender.”
