PREPARING YOUNG PEOPLE FOR LIFE

At World Challenge, we believe that life skills are developed through real life experience.

Adding a student-led expedition to your curriculum will add an opportunity for your students to develop resilience and become educated global citizens. An expedition program can work side by side with your school curriculum and the framework of personal learning and thinking skills that your school delivers to students.

World Challenge has unrivalled knowledge and support resources for overseas school trips & expeditions. We can provide a no-obligation meeting with a representative from World Challenge who will discuss with you all aspects of an expedition program. Request a meeting for your school here.
