As a Geography teacher, you’ll inspire curiosity in our world and its future.
During your course, you’ll understand how to teach students about the changing economic world; the Human Development Index; the Development Gap and the world’s distribution of income. We’ll explore and explain the world we live in, linking the human and physical world, and look at the role of fieldwork.
One of the key skills you’ll learn is how to encourage students to think and study like a geographer and how to apply their geographical knowledge. You’ll challenge them to discuss, analyse, evaluate and assess – all vital and transferable skills.
The course encourages dialogue with your students, showing them how to learn from their mistakes and take pride in their work, sharing learning goals to help them understand the standards they are striving to achieve. You’ll also learn how to closely monitor progress to ensure all students reach their full potential.
A tax-free bursary of £15,000 (or £17,000 scholarship) is available for trainee Geography teachers if you have a 1st, 2:1, 2:2, Master’s or PhD.

“The subject specific training has been useful for putting skills we learn on hub days into practice for our subject. Not only learning the subject content, but effective ways to teach this in the classroom.”
