With the changes to the GCSE and A level specifications teachers are needing to reassess their fieldwork provision to ensure progression. This course will discuss the elements of progression, in particular tracking from Year 7 through to the Independent Investigation aspect of the new A level specifications. There will also be opportunities to go out into the field to design experiences for different key stages.
