We have established educational excursions to complement our commitment to learning beyond the classroom walls. As with all our programs, educational objectives are matched to important social strategies and the development of the participant’s self-confidence and well being.
Our school trips are conducted all year round but mostly during the school times (Monday to Friday). We may venture out of Norway to many parts of the world to explore and better understand international mindedness. Taking part on a Travel and Learn is trip is not just about learning a language, a sport or about the environment, but also about developing life and social skills in preparation for a lifetime of contributing productively in our changing and complex world. Our travel experience provides people of all ages with inspirational opportunities to explore and self-develop as a global citizen.
These trips are led by enthusiastic world travelers and cross-cultural experts with experience in leading groups of children and adults. Our group leaders and teachers are prepared for the responsibility of the welfare of groups of mixed nationalities.
Planning and Organizing
Planning, organizing and leading educational trips is a very demanding and motivating activity. We believe that appropriate and safely organized school travels provide a unique opportunity to develop a young person’s imagination, sense of responsibility, social skills and sensitivity. Please see the BoD approved policy for Extended School Excursions.
