Geography

Geography opens up the physical environment around them and the ways in which people interact with this environment.  In the 21st century, with growing awareness of the impact of human activity upon the environment and scarce resources, the study of Geography fosters positive life-long attitudes of environmental stewardship, sustainability and global citizenship.

This course will provide learners with the knowledge and skills to enable them to contribute effectively to their local communities and wider society. National courses in Geography are appropriate for a wide range of learners including those who wish to achieve a greater understanding of the environment and their place in it.
