FSC 'Stepping Stones' in Geography Fieldwork
Our fieldwork courses in geography are available at primary, all secondary, A-level and university level. Therefore, they offer the opportunity to build skills, knowledge and understanding of geography in a progressive programme of fieldwork, using a variety of contrasting environments across a network of FSC day and residential centres.
Carrying out a simple geography fieldwork investigation, looking at how people and the environment interact in a designated environment. Developing map and geography fieldwork skills in a rural village, market town, at the coast or in the mountains.
Exciting ways of providing a practical dimension to National Curriculum geography through fieldwork. This could be achieved through one of our new KS3 geography fieldwork courses, specifically designed to maximise time spent 'in the field'.
