A-Level Field Studies

For students working towards A Level, our field studies programmes can provide the vital requirements to fulfil their fieldwork needs – whether that is brushing up on their fieldwork skills in preparation for their exams or completing their Independent Investigation (NEA).

Our tutors can deliver all aspects of the course and support students through their enquiries as they develop their own hypotheses and strategies.

Skills Development Course

At Skern Lodge, students can learn and practice fieldwork techniques and enhance their subject knowledge through first hand experiences linked to established case studies.

This tutor-led course will give students vital experience in all stages of the investigation process, from choosing the right sampling strategy to the correct and appropriate use of the fieldwork kit.

Our workshops allow students to be introduced to what comes next after the completion of fieldwork. These can include; the use of correct geographical terminology, evaluation of the accuracy and reliability of the fieldwork kit and data presentation and statistics.

Independent Investigation (NEA)

Students are able to complete their A Level Investigation at Skern Lodge. From pilot studies to advice on fieldwork best practice, from top tips on presentation methods to local expertise, our tutors are here to help on every step of the way.

The days will be spent collecting data for students’ individual projects, in order to answer questions and prove or disprove any hypotheses surrounding their chosen titles. There will be opportunities throughout their stay to start collating data, chat with Skern tutors and draft up an ‘action plan’ that will guide in the completion of their individual projects once returned home.

All fieldwork equipment can be provided.
