Perhaps with the new 'sense of place'/ increasing role of qualitative methods stuff you could say 'able to understand how places influence you like Benjamin Zephaniah'?

able to use maps and charts like Ellen MacArthur?

A good place to start is - which will give you all the info about how Ambassadors work in schools, their role and what they can provide. If it all looks good you can then head to the link that Jodi kindly sent to you, fill in the form which will come straight to me and I'll get the ball rolling. Any queries or questions just shout!

I am doing some thinking about what makes an outstanding geographer and thinking about qualities that oustanding geogeraphers have.

I also want to try and link it to real people.

Along the lines of:

Able to use statistics like Hans Rosling
Able to describe places like Michael Palin

However looking for other people that might have other qualities - particularly looking for non-white males to try and make it more representative to the context in which I am teaching.

Any ideas?

It's free! Hurrah!
Link to the RGS page

We had two second year students from Cardiff Uni. They approached me, were really flexible with the time (down to changing time the day before because of the football yesterday!) and the year groups. They came up with two ideas (tourism destinations map work and Brexit debate) and made all the resources. They hung around afterwards for pupils to talk to them about uni and geography. They asked if they could come back as Lower 6th were on internal exams. These two students had finished their exams and were actually on holiday! They were better prepared than some PGCE students we have had!
Was our first experience of it and it was brilliant.
Wow - the brass neck of trying to flog things with the logos or names of the authors clearly shown.

How would I go about getting them in and how much would it cost?  (We are member of RGS.)

I know I am a bit late to this initiative but if you haven't had any they are fab! We have just had the most engaging, fun and relevant two workshops with two ambassadors. Other subjects have looked on enviably! My only regret is we didn't invite them years ago! ps I don't work for the RGS!
Hi Bob - thanks for flagging this up definitely a RGS resource in the list - which is freely available anyway!

On the case with the TES
