Think back to when you were at school, everyone always had that one favourite teacher, the one that went out of their way for their students and who was interesting, fun and adventurous!
My favourite was called Mr.Steward and he is still there now – he was bonkers!!
Wouldn’t it be amazing to be that teacher that your students will speak about in 10, 20 or even 30 years time?!
What if you could provide your students with a ‘once in a lifetime‘ expedition to somewhere they would have only dreamt have going before? Even better, what if you could join them on the expedition?
We have an easy ticket for you to be everyone’s favourite as we’ll need an A-star teacher to accept the role as the ‘link teacher’. Could this be you?
As the name suggests, you’ll be the point-of-call between us and your school and we need at least one ‘link teacher’ for each expedition team, with a maximum group of 16 students.
You will get behind the students to support them with their fundraising and the build-up to the expedition and assist the leader on the expedition with decisions and pastoral issues.
Support we give:
- You’d get your own dedicated expedition manager, who you can contact at anytime with questions or for support
- Your own dossier – this will tell you everything you need to know ahead of the expedition, answer all your questions and give you the steps to take in every part of your adventure – this has been described as ‘bloody priceless’ and we agree!
- You’d get your own teacher training – don’t worry this isn’t your usual boring chalk-board stuff, we’ll make sure that you’re fully prepared for your expedition on our 3-day training course.
- Your first aid certificate – you will gain this within the training – so you really will be ready for anything!
