Course Introduction

Geography is a subject that is accessible to all pupils because it is rooted in a study of the world around us and personal experience can often be a valid starting point in any geographical topic. Workshops focus on every aspect of Geography teaching to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to be a competent geography teacher in school today. This includes the development of personal resources, lesson plans and teaching strategies for the classroom. Subject mentors in partnership schools support trainees in turning planning into practice. The course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) on completion of skills tests.
