What will students see and do?
Fancy taking your students on a trip abroad? Countries offered by Outlook Expeditions for trips include India, Thailand, Greece, Peru, Jordan and many more, including trips to South America, Europe, Africa, Southeast Asia and more.
Students will be abroad for a minimum of seven days and some trips last for as long as 18 days.
Specific activities depend on what country your students are visiting. You can visit temples in Thailand, scuba dive in Belize, explore Petra in Jordan or help out local communities in Malawi.
Students will discover a new culture and gain more knowledge about the world outside of the UK.
The first step when booking with Outlook Expeditions is an itinerary session, where you work with the team to develop the perfect itinerary for your group.
Next, your expedition leader will meet students and parents so they can get to know the person who will lead them during their trip. After that, there’s a training weekend in a national park environment in the UK.
Along with this, assemblies are offered for students several months before the trip and one month before the trip to go over more details.
How does the trip link to the curriculum?
Educational tours like these allow students to learn about different cultures around the world first-hand.
Outlook Expeditions promotes responsible climate travel and vocalises the importance of preserving the environment, making a trip like this a good fit for science students. Activities might include visiting an elephant preservation area in Laos, for example.
Students studying foreign languages will also benefit. For instance, visit Peru and encourage pupils to use their language skills to order meals and communicate with locals.
