  • develop knowledge and understanding of the features and characteristics of places and environments across a range of scales
  • develop knowledge and understanding of interactions between people, places and environments
  • develop knowledge and understanding of contemporary geographical issues and their management
  • apply geographical tools for geographical inquiry
