Through a Teacher's Eyes
To prepare an excellent school trip, a teacher usually needs to visit the location and spend considerable time visiting venues, preparing educational materials, conducting risk assessments, not to mention planning logistics of travel, accommodation & food! But hard-pressed teachers don’t have time to do all that.
We have used expert teachers to do it all for you.
From curriculum-focused resources and activities, to risk assessments and travel & accommodation plans - we have done the hard, time consuming work for you, so all you have to do is bring your students and teach!
We have even prepared Parent Notes to help you explain the benefits of the trip to the ones who have to pay, pre-visit classroom activities to help ensure the kids know what’s necessary to get the most out of the trip, sample lesson plans and follow-on notes to reintegrate the learning on your return to school, and much more.
In fact, everything you need to make it an EXCELLENT fun, memorable and educational trip with the minimum of time and inconvenience to the teacher.
Detailed Risk Assessments
A comprehensive Risk Assessment is available for ALL Education Destination featured venues. If you have any special needs that you feel are not addressed, let us know and we'll help address these.
For each of our venues, we have provided a detailed On-The-Day Procedure which starts with your arrival and tells you everything that a group leader needs to know about a venue in a couple of pages, including a site plan showing the locations of things you might need in a hurry - toilets, storage, first aid, lost child points etc..
Each document is carefully prepared by teachers experienced in leading school visits at different age groups.
Comprehensive Video Tours
We've toured each of our venues with a video camera to give you an insight into each aspect of our venues that will be of interest to a group leader, highlighting learning opportunities, links to our resources as well as flagging up any areas of particular risk.
Special Needs Considered
Just as every Education Destination itinerary is different, we know that every group of visitors is different too. Each of our venues has been assessed for the more common special needs, and provisions / restrictions highlighted. However, if you have students or delegates with particular requirements, we'll be happy to advise and support.
