Geography Teacher Training

As a geography teacher, you will bring the world to your classroom. It will be your responsibility to deliver a dynamic and engaging curriculum that is growing in popularity as more students choose this subject at GCSE.

Studying geography allows students to understand the physical geography behind how places and landscapes are formed. They’ll also discover more about how people interact with their environment, what consequences arise from everyday life and gain a broader understanding of the different cultures and societies that exist across the globe.

Young people have a natural curiosity about the world around them, and excellent Geography teaching enables pupils to appreciate the varied and fantastic world in which we live.


In order to become a secondary school teacher in geography, you should be passionate about the subject and be willing to share this with pupils in an inspirational and engaging way. It is your mission to inspire young people’s interest in the world and its environment.

It is important to have a good understanding of both physical and human geography but also be well-versed in the appropriate terminology and skills such as fieldwork, mapping, data handling and research.

The SCITT Programme

Our programme will give you support to gain confidence in teaching this broad subject that allows pupils to develop their practical, analytical, creative, evaluative and problem-solving skills. You’ll develop the skills required to devise and deliver enlightening lessons about our planet’s people, places, landscapes and natural history.

You will work alongside an experienced team of Geographers and the wider Humanities department, who have proven ability to ensure achievement for all pupils.

The course has been amazing so far. It has offered an all-round experience, including teaching both human and physical Geography topics and opportunities to partake in fieldwork trips. Not to mention, I have worked alongside some inspirational characters and felt part of a team in each placement. With support and guidance where required, I have been able to develop a teaching style adapted to suit me. It has certainly been challenging but not without all sorts of excitement and fulfilment along the way
