Geography teacher training

Geography isn’t just an important subject that teaches young people about the world around them – it’s also increasingly popular. With geography, there is always so much to learn and you could be sharing this knowledge with students who share your passion. 

"Teaching students geography is a lot of fun, watching them get inspired by something I have taught them is brilliant. I wouldn't want to do anything else."



By choosing to train to teach geography, you could be entitled to a tax-free bursary of £15,000 or a prestigious tax-free scholarship of £17,000. Find out more information about funding here.

Tax-free funding of up to £17,000 along with additional funding via Student Finance
