SCHOOL EXPEDITIONS: TAKING LEARNING OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM TO THE NEXT LEVEL
What better way to develop life skills such as communication, budgeting and problem-solving than on a school expedition? Building confidence through adventurous activities, learning new skills such as teaching in a school or experiencing something out of the ordinary like going on safari.
Expeditions for students with special educational needs
The opportunity to have a gap year has almost become a rite of passage for many, but it seems to us that there aren’t the same opportunities for those with special educational needs.
As a result, we have developed this 2-week expedition to South Africa specifically for students with learning difficulties.
