If, as a teacher, you’ve taken on the sometimes unenviable task of planning an overseas student trip with a school group travel company, then let us be the first to congratulate you. Despite the hard work, we can definitely say it will be worth it. More importantly, we'd like to offer you a few words of advice, because even if you're experienced at such things, there is always more to consider!
We’re the first to admit that there are plenty of school travel companies around the UK, all hoping that your student’s (or parents') hard-earned cash will be going to them. But at The STC, we like to think we do things a little differently and really earn the right to plan, organise and deliver an exceptional educational trip of a lifetime, not only for your students, but for you too.
A school travel company with experience
Many teachers start to feel the tingle of nervousness when starting to plan overseas school trips. Especially when they’re long-haul, overseas expeditions that have a lot (and we mean, a LOT) of things to sort out before you even set off. We’re talking health & safety, risk assessment, group insurance, travel and accommodation, management of medical conditions... and that’s on top of figuring out any of the fun stuff you’ll get up to when you’re all there.
So, where to begin? Well, getting a respected, experienced and dedicated school travel company is a great place to start. And The School Travel Consultancy are all three of those things. We’ve been on the school group travel map since 2006, so have over a decade’s worth of practical skill, knowledge, nouse and know-how to make your life a lot easier and make everyone’s experience a life-affirming and life-changing one.
The full school expedition package
As a leading school travel company, The STC really do want to take as much pressure off you as possible. We totally understand that the logistics of organising an overseas trip can be overwhelming (to say the least), so we can be your ideal one-stop student adventure travel partner to get your ideal trip up and running as smoothly as possible.
So if you’ve found yourself in the position of ‘organiser’, or indeed, if this was all your idea, and need a helping hand in getting it all off the ground, then contacting The STC is a solid first step! Come and see us for a chat and you can tell us your grand plans, then you can leave us to get our expedition thinking caps on to find or create a unique educational travel destination and itinerary that suits you.
Once we’ve put together all our recommendations with fully-costed quotes and details, you’re free to peruse and revise at your leisure. When everyone's boxes are ticked, we’ll get to work on producing some stunning marketing material, trip summaries, even organise parent evenings to explain what this once in a lifetime trip will entail, including a full Q&A session to let them know that we do actually know what we’re doing!
Where can we take you?
For a worldwide range of culturally diverse, extraordinary adventures and educational journeys, let the STC take the strain and deliver an inspirational package that can put you, and students of all ages, anywhere on the map.
