Discover the World Education is proud to work in partnership with the Field Studies Council (FSC) to offer a brand new, exclusive range of geography and science fieldwork opportunities in Iceland.
From October 2017, you can choose from a range of fieldwork courses designed, developed and delivered by FSC tutors which will engage your students via experiential learning and which directly support the new geography and science specifications being taught from September 2016.
Students will have the opportunity to develop investigative and practical skills and to evaluate and analyse their data, improving critical thinking skills and helping to fulfil the new requirements for practical work.
The FSC fieldwork courses each last between two and four hours, depending on your requirements, and have been designed to be easily incorporated into a typical geography or science itinerary, providing additional educational value and allowing you to further enhance your students’ experience.
The courses are available exclusively to groups who book a Discover the World school trip, and are available in autumn 2017 and spring 2018 at a number of sites across Iceland.

About the Partnership
The partnership with the Field Studies Council is built on Discover the World Education’s philosophy of making your students’ learning outcomes and personal development our key focus. We work with a range of leading teachers, fieldwork providers and educational experts to ensure that the itineraries we offer are educationally relevant, engaging and will enrich your students’ learning. We are delighted to be working with one of the UK’s leading providers of learning outside the classroom and an organisation with whom we share many common goals.
The FSC is an environmental education charity providing informative and enjoyable opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to discover, explore, and understand the environment. As a charity it relies on fees paid by its visitors and the generosity of donors. As part of the partnership agreement, Discover the World Education will pass on profits generated by the fieldwork courses directly to the FSC.
