Fieldwork in schools

Well-planned and safely run fieldwork can benefit students’ learning and personal development. Positive fieldwork experiences may also encourage students to continue their geographical education to Key Stage 4 and beyond.

We can help you with top tips for running successful fieldwork, information about health and safety guidelines, ideas and resources for running fieldwork in your local area and beyond, how to link your fieldwork to GIS and other technologies, training and CPD and much more.

The Society would like to thank consultants Chloe Searl and Andrew Dimberline who have contributed widely to the material found on these school fieldwork pages. 

The Society is part of the Learning Away Consortium
