Our programme will give you support to gain confidence teaching this broad subject that allows pupils to develop their practical, analytical, creative, evaluative and problem-solving skills. 

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.

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
