Investigate a local settlement and undertake quantitative and qualitative fieldwork methods to gain a sense of place. Students will investigate how the place is changing over time and into the future as well as agents of change.
Small Group or Individual Student Days are designed to bring together individual students, home schooled students, schools with small class sizes, or students that were unable to attend a residential or alternative trip. By bringing groups together we aim to keep the overall costs lower, and you do not incur our minimum daily fee. This offer is restricted to no more than 8 pupils from any one school per course, and students must be accompanied.
Due to safeguarding reasons we are unable to let adult learners attend these courses. To ensure safety all U18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult on residential courses, eg teacher or parent.
Tutor: Field Studies Council Staff
Courses are led by experienced Field Studies Council staff.
This course usually runs from 9.30am – 4pm. During your visit you will be welcome to the centre and given an appropriate health and safety briefing. Your session will start with an introduction to the day, aims and objectives. Throughout the day we will undertake fieldwork, collecting data appropriate to the topic. We will break for lunch, before continuing with our fieldwork. Depending on the day and the specific times of your visit we may include some data presentation and analysis and we will end the day with a summary including drawing conclusions and limitations. Please note that specific activities for your group are subject to change. We go out in all weathers and seasons and will tailor the content of the day accordingly.
