Geography A Level Coursework Update
FSC recently organised a meeting at the Royal Geographical Society, bringing together all the English and Welsh awarding organisations, the Geographical Association, PGL and Field Studies Council. The first round of A level coursework in the specifications were discussed and ideas about how to ensure that teachers and students are supported within the requirements were suggested and shared amongst the group.
The meeting was very positive, with support shown for the concept of individual fieldwork supporting the A level specifications. FSC fed directly into the Best Practice in Fieldwork document published jointly by AQA and FSC, as well as another supporting document published by all the awarding organisations.
Over the past 18 months, working alongside the awarding organisations, FSC has moved itself into a position where it is seen as a trusted and valuable service to teachers, as well as a communication channel for awarding organisations and the geography community to communicate key beneficial messages to teachers.
