As part of my work for the GA SPC and Fareham’s Geography Curriculum Development Group I have trawled through the Edexcel draft specifications for the first batch of diplomas. The summary document can be found here. Construction and the Built Environment provide the clearest links to our subject.
The question of course is what to do with the information? It could be used to help with the recruitment of geography pupils at Key Stage 4 by showing pupils how Geography compliments their chosen Diploma. It could also be used to start discussions with the providers of the diplomas ion your area – could geography be ‘contracted’ to deliver aspects of the diplomas?
