The Benefits

High Educational Value and Skills Development

  • Each trip is designed as part of a Global Learning Programme to give your students an outstanding educational experience, and enhance cross-curricular learning
  • Many of the topics you experience in-country are taught within the curriculum – what better way to appreciate the complexities of poverty reduction in Nepal, biodiversity in Costa Rica, or coral reef ecosystems in Zanzibar?
  • Students receive the ASDAN Universities Award, highlighted by UCAS for applicants to include in their Personal Statement. This can really help your students stand out from the crowd!
  • Students can use our trips for extended essay research, or towards the IB’s Creativity, Action and Service (CAS)
  • Our managers facilitate dynamic Global Learning Workshops to help students get the most out of trip learning, and see how their activities interlink with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
  • Teachers have told us that the educational value of Global Action trips has contributed towards Sixth Form retention and raised the school’s profile locally
  • Global Learning the Global Action way puts students (and sometimes teachers!) outside their comfort zone to build essential Knowledge, Employable Skills and Values for life.  Skills like critical thinking, communication, leadership, teamwork, resilience, determination and grit.

Don’t Just Listen To Us

  • This trip has changed my son's life.  Following his trip he has decided to follow a different career option and he is going to study International Development at Uni as he wants to work in foreign aid-development and make a difference to the world.



  • The trip exceeded my expectations and was much more enjoyable than I thought it would be, whilst still being extremely informative.  Eye-opening, very enjoyable, and inspiring further research about the institutions we visited.

  • The experience has given me a fascinating insight into the work of humanitarians and has allowed me to broaden my horizons.
