Course content

Your learning will cover two main strands involving an enquiry-based approach to geography and real-world practical activities, which you will then translate into your classroom lessons.

Your initial training will be based around developing your own personal vision of geography, which will feed into your teaching style by drawing on influences of your own geographical background and knowledge.
We will encourage you to take an enquiry-based approach to learning, actively posing questions and investigating geographical issues through exploring and questioning.
