On the 1st November 2016, Discover the World Education (DTWE) became proud strategic partners with the Geographical Association (GA), the professional subject association for geography teaching.
Discover the World Education and the GA have entered into a strategic partnership with the following aims and objectives:
To make the benefits of international field studies more accessible to geography students, both inside and outside the classroom.
- Offer opportunities to experience the learning and personal development benefits of international field study trips to geography students and teachers who, through challenging circumstances or lack of opportunity, have not previously undertaken such a trip.
- Help participating geography students and teachers make the most of their international field study experiences, through high-quality preparation, itineraries, resources and support.
- Share the outcomes and experiences of international field studies with a wider audience of geography students and teachers.
What does the partnership mean to you and your students?
