Schools Affiliate Scheme

Geology, although often not a stand alone subject within schools, is covered across all the science disciplines – chemistry, physics and biology as well as in geography. 

At the Geological Society we can provide support to those schools wishing to understand more about Earth sciences and how to incorporate examples within the National Curriculum for England, Wales and Northern Ireland and the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence.

Benefits of joining

The Society can provide the following supporting material to schools as part of the Schools Affiliate Scheme:

"" Monthly copy of Geoscientist Magazine "" Email newsletters - with information on new Earth Science related educational resources, events and other items that may be of interest to teachers and students; schools can also offer their own material for inclusion
"" Access to Geologists who can visit the school via the STEM Ambassador's scheme.
"" Information about careers in Earth Sciences
"" Each registered school is automatically allocated to their local Regional Group, allowing easy access to local events, contacts etc. Our strong relationship with other worldwide geological societies gives us access to their teaching materials. It also gives UK schools the opportunity for international partnerships.

The opportunity for students to become Junior Candidate Fellows
Geophysics Information about geology degrees accredited by the Society to assist students in selecting courses.
"" Access to our monthly Public Lectures aimed at a lay audience, and other GSL events "" Online Resources organised by Key Stage and age group, including Factsheets, Activities & Presentations and Rock Sets.
