Help the next generation learn about the world and environment with our Geography PGCE. Here at Staffordshire University, we’ll help you reflect on your teaching and build your expertise. Through placements, you’ll become confident carrying out lessons in secondary schools.

Schools in the UK need geography teachers that are keen to share their expertise about different places, landscapes and processes.
