Christian Keil Host: Christian has been a Geography teacher for 9 years, teaching year groups from KS3 to KS5. He specialised in outdoor fieldwork prior to teaching. Alongside teaching, for the past 3 years, Christian has been an Examiner which allows him to understand exactly what is expected of students to receive the grades they wish to achieve.

Many factors affect the climate around us and why we experience different climates across the globe. In this class, students will look at the local factors which can influence a climate. These may be man-made or natural factors for example the growth of urban areas, climate relief, the presence of coastal zones and altitude. Students will then be able to link these factors to real life locations so students can understand the real world impact of these factors.  

By providing the background knowledge alongside relatable examples, after this class students will have a really clear overview of climatic factors and be able to show off their knowledge in exam or teacher assessments.
