Every trip we run is another group of students being offered the trip of a lifetime to learn how different life can be in each corner of the world. Not to mention, the trip will be more of a success for both you and your school if more pupils participate.
When it comes to launching your trip overseas we have several different ways of helping you to promote it and get students signed up. Admittedly we won’t make a mad dash through the assembly hall dressed as a panda to promote your next trip to China but we can offer any or all of these different tools:
Summary Itineraries: We think it’s important that students don’t just know where they will be going but also have a good idea of what they will be doing. Who knows, the future biologists amongst them might be far more interested once they realise a trip to Costa Rica includes turtle conservation!
Parental Information Packs: Parents and carers are a vital part of the decision making process. For each of our trips we build information packs aimed towards parents and carers covering details on the itinerary, safety, the support we offer, the build up to the trip and other topics we have found they tend to question us about.
Destination Images: They say a picture tells a thousand words. We can provide you with plenty of destination images for you to use when promoting your trip. Who knows, when you return we might share your photos with other schools to use too!
Poster Design: Some of our team are pretty nifty in the design department (we like to think anyway!) and can provide you with bright posters to plaster the school walls about the trip.
PowerPoint Slides: No one likes to build a PowerPoint but we all have to admit that they are pretty handy. To save you the hassle we can make PowerPoint slides all about the trip for you to use in assemblies, information events. Hey, why not ditch the lesson plans one day and use our slides instead…
Assemblies: We can provide you with presentations and information to use when providing an assembly about the trip or come and do one for you if you’d really like.
Parents’ Launch Evenings: Being the knowledge experts that we are, we like to host a Parents’ Launch Evening for all of our trips. This gives us the opportunity to explain to parents just what their children will be getting from the trip as well as giving them a chance to ask any questions they may have (or interrogate us as it may well be). This is not designed to be a hard sell but an opportunity for all sides to fully understand what is on offer.
And remember it doesn’t stop there, we are here to provide help and support at every step in your journey in order to provide an excellent experience for both you and your students.
