The history and geography teams at Pearson are dedicated to inspiring and developing historians and geographers of the future. We encourage learners to develop the skills they need to understand and interrogate the world around them, so that they become well-rounded global citizens of tomorrow, leading to positive outcomes for their future careers.
The Pearson World Changer Awards
Who is striving to change the face of society, positively impact the environment, or make their mark on their community? Pearson wants to find out...
The Pearson World Changer Awards, opening later this year, celebrate the children and young people who are taking their learning to the next level to make a positive and tangible impact on the world beyond the classroom.
It has never been more important to be aware of the world around us, to understand what is happening in our communities – in countries both near and far – and to recognise the impact that every one of our actions can make.
At their heart, the World Changer Awards are about inspiring children and young people to interrogate the world around them, engage with local and global affairs and harness the power of education to drive change.
Fieldwork is an important aspect of geography and helps develop an array of useful life skills. Fieldwork can be challenging, informative, sometimes messy but often a lot of fun. It allows students to explore issues and questions in a real-world context and to question their own findings. It nurtures analytical and critical thinking and helps to build resilience.
Take a look at our fieldwork videos and explore our free resources to help develop the skills you will need when you have the opportunity to go back out in the field.
The last three months have been unprecedented and not without their profound challenges. Never have we seen schools, families, businesses and the wider sector come together so powerfully to support learning.
