Earth Science Education Scotland Campaign

The Royal Scottish Geographical Society is backing a new campaign to promote, extend and maintain the level of Earth science content in Scottish high schools.



Earth Science Education Scotland

Earth Science Education Scotland is a wide group of people who are interested in Earth science in Scotland. Supported by the RSGS, they have come together due to concern at the very low content of Earth science in the Scottish schools’ curriculum.

Earth Science Education Scotland are currently lobbying the Scottish Government, Education Scotland, the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) to ensure that the planned cessation of the Higher geology certificate in 2015 is postponed until a new Earth science Higher is created. A recent survey undertaken by the group has demonstrated the enthusiasm for teaching the subject at higher level in Scottish schools.

Find out more about Earth Science Education Scotland by visiting the campaign website, which explains the background to the campaign.
