Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Key Stage 4 Geography Fieldwork

Complete all the fieldwork requirements
Fieldwork must be completed on two separate occasions, outside the classroom and school grounds in at least two contrasting environments. An FSC course can achieve this using a physical and a human environment. FSC can provide background information to assist schools in completing the fieldwork statement.

Learn and apply fieldwork skills
FSC’s expert field teachers will lead the teaching in real world, exemplar sites to ensure students gain the transferable knowledge, skills and understanding associated with the six stages of the fieldwork enquiry process. This will help them gain the grades they want within the fieldwork-related exam questions which is worth 15% of total marks, covering unfamiliar contexts as well as students’ own experiences.

Develop geographical, mathematical and statistical skills
Students will analyse contextualised data they have collected themselves to develop a greater understanding of the geographical, mathematical and statistical skills which are integrated within all components of each specification.

Inspire your students to think like a geographer
Inspire your students to think like a geographer by immersing them in stunning, real world environments and by using the latest geo-spatial technologies.
