A 3 day / 2 night course – Day one includes an introduction to the issues within Skegness; there are so many geographical lines of enquiry to investigate here ranging from the impact of climate change, coastal management, social inequality, changing places, conservation of ecosystems, regeneration etc – so students have few problems finding individuality to each of their study titles. Students experiment with new forms of data collection during the fieldwork menu and develop a sense of place in the town, on the beach and at Gibraltar Point if requested.

In the evening, students work independently to design their fieldwork titles and aims, which we will offer guidance with on the morning of day two. Students create their own bespoke fieldwork data collection booklets before heading out from our central base to independently gather their data.

In the late afternoon, we complete a session demonstrating GIS and statistical tests – students then consider what other data they may need to collect to enable suitable presentation and analysis.

On the final day, students have a second opportunity to gather data from Skegness, based on their refinements from the evening before.

*Prices below are based on group sizes of 10 students and above - for bookings of fewer students, the price will be quoted on enquiry. Prices including food will also be quoted on enquiry as this is available with both of our accommodation providers (Butlin's and the Crown Hotel) and is a very popular option.
