About enquiries

Enquiries are teaching resources designed to give students the opportunity to produce a sustained piece of work that brings together core content and essential skills. Pursuing the enquiries requires pupils to ask questions about real problems, to collect and interpret information and to think critically about possible solutions, whilst building up their knowledge and understanding of fundamental geographical issues. Find out more about enquiries and how they can be approached.
