A genuine learning experience
Educators are becoming increasingly mindful of the role that hands-on learning and experiential opportunities play in preparing students for the 21st Century. Academy Travel sees this philosophical shift in the way schools, teachers, and students are looking to endeavors beyond the classroom walls to enhance and deepen learning. We are dedicated to education and we seek to broaden horizons, inspire critical and creative thinking and encourage students to become global citizens.
Academy Travel is committed to providing students and family members with a stress-free, well-organised and memorable travel experience, with safety and security remaining our highest priority at all times.
The Academy Travel Experience
We work with a range of schools and tertiary institutions across Australia in both city and regional cities.
Safety and Security
The safety and security of our groups is our number one priority and we have systems in place in order to ensure this.
We constantly monitor the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) travel advisories and will take appropriate action in the event of changes to advisory levels.
We also have a comprehensive risk management plan that covers all potential scenarios that is provided to the school. This allows for all parties (school, teachers, tour manager, etc) to have guidelines on how to manage any potential situation that may occur.
