Using geography to support London teachers and enhance the aspiration and achievement of pupils at KS2, 3 and GCSE
Studying geography can promote an understanding and curiosity about the world and its people and support progression into university and the workplace. This Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) programme is intended to improve the teaching and learning of geography in London’s schools and encourage more pupils to study this academically robust and relevant subject. The project aims to raise teachers' understanding of geographical subject knowledge, addressing their knowledge gaps and the new level of academic demand needed to introduce the new curriculum and examinations. A core ambition of this programme is to boost teachers' confidence in using geographical knowledge (not generic ‘skills’) and their undertaking of London-based fieldwork. Programme resources will support pupils' higher level understanding of geographical core knowledge so that they can better achieve against the new curriculum and examinations. The programme ultimately intends to make geography interesting and highlight its relevance to further study and careers to raise entry levels at GCSE and A Level.
