Worldwise Challenge

The culmination of Worldwise for secondary schools is the annual Worldwise Challenge event. This is a free-of-charge residential weekend (from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon) of fieldwork activities aimed at Y9-11.

Approximately 10 schools will be invited to send a team of 3 pupils and a teacher to take part in a broad range of enjoyable and competitive fieldwork activities at a Field Studies Council centre in the UK, usually in either April or May.

Schools will be invited based on the degree and quality of pupil engagement in any of the other Worldwise activites. Teachers attending will also be offered a unique CPD opportunity based around quality fieldwork content delivered by experienced professional staff. As well as the overall title of Worldwise Challenge Winners there are a number of other prizes available to be won during the weekend.


How to enter?

Schools are invited based on their prior involvement with all of the other Worldwise activities. You can however register your interest at any time by downloading and completing the below form and posting or emailing it to rbuck@geography.org.uk
