Following a degree in Geography, I was employed by the Field Studies Council at Slapton Ley as a Geography Tutor for 3 years before leaving to undertake my PGCE. This was followed by 5 years teaching Geography at Secondary schools in Austria and Devon. I have maintained my fieldwork teaching by leading several courses each year; mostly focussing on coastal management, fluvial processes and changing rural settlements. I have taught courses for GCSE, IB, AS and A2 as well as Common Entrance project work.
I teach several residential AS level Geography Fieldwork courses each year at Magdalen Farm in West Dorset. This is a fantastic venue for the key topics of rural settlement, rivers and coastal processes and landforms. I have been leading courses there for over 12 years and have a good knowledge of the local area and the issues affecting it. Magdalen Farm is also a fantastic example of sustainability with an organic smallholding, bio-fuel heating system, solar PV and a reed-bed for sewage treatment. It also has by far the best food of any residential centre I have ever visited or worked at! to discuss the possibilities at this fantastic venue please contact Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
I can offer one day courses for schools in Northern Devon and North Cornwall for Key stage 3 and 4 groups as well as other forest education events including tree planting
