Course content

You'll begin by understanding the needs of individual learners and implementing key teaching strategies to help students engage with the subject. Working with individual groups of pupils in school, you'll gradually build up to teach whole classes about ecosystems and human geography, including supervision in fieldwork and ICT. This will involve fostering the appropriate levels of learning in pupils, corresponding to the requirements of the Teachers' Standard.

We'll help you develop into an enthusiastic, reflective and thoughtful teacher, specialising in creatively using fieldwork, enquiry-based learning and ICT to enhance both your learning and those of your future students. We make good use of the exciting locations on offer, with easy access to the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and other areas of interest. Highly rated by OFSTED for our success in creating effective teachers, by studying with us you'll learn to share your enthusiasm and expert geographical knowledge with young people in the classroom.
