With the time for choosing GCSE options approaching, there has never been a better time to encourage your students to choose GCSE geography.
Not only does geography help students to make sense of the world around them, it is also hands-on, relevant and fun. From urban issues and economic development to global ecosystems, landscapes and hazards, GCSE geography enables students to get to grips with the big issues facing our world, and helps them develop transferable skills which can be used in their other subjects and day to day life.
Due to the highly transferable skills geography provides including data and geospatial skills, teamwork, fieldwork, visual communication skills and geographical argument, studying geography opens doors to many different courses at both A Level and beyond in the sciences, technology, arts, humanities and social sciences. This range of opportunities continues into the varied career paths geography can lead to, from roles in government, environment, international development, finance, transport, planning and more. A whole range of careers are waiting to be explored in our I am a geographer career profiles.
We have a range of resources to support you and your students with choosing to study GCSE geography and for them to learn more about where the subject could take them at A Level and into higher education. A session with one of our Geography Ambassadors is another great way to introduce students to the many exciting and relevant benefits of studying geography, widening their perception of the subject and encouraging them to pursue it beyond the compulsory stages. Ambassadors run sessions on a number of themes, including promoting geography at GCSE, A Level, university and within careers. You can book a Geography Ambassador visit through our website.
