Two major milestones for Australia’s educational touring industry
Strategic Review and Tour Planning
Melbourne, Australia: Latitude Group Travel today announced the launch of their gamechanging Strategic Review and Tour Planning product. This new service offers schools the opportunity to reset and reimagine existing educational touring programs, as the travel industry evolves post COVID-19, creating a clear pathway for school executive teams to plan and lead their future tour programs with confidence.
The Strategic Review and Tour Planning service adopts an holistic approach to school tour planning, which is unique in the Australian educational touring market. Latitude Group Travel works closely with executive leaders to dig deep into the school’s mission, values, strategy and curriculum. A personalised school tour plan is then developed, which is aligned to the strategy, mapped to the curriculum and which covers domestic and international opportunities across all subjects.
Critically, Latitude Group Travel ensures sound environmental and ethical choices for the planet and its inhabitants, flora and fauna, ensuring the school meets parent and other stakeholder expectations around sustainability and responsible travel.
Carbon Offset Programs
Additionally, Latitude Group Travel also announced it is offering carbon offset programs for school tours. The company has also taken significant steps to reduce its own carbon footprint and increase sustainability within its own operations.
Said Latitude Group Travel Founder, Jenny Murphy: “Latitude Group Travel’s Strategic Tour Planning service allows schools to place themselves at the forefront of educational touring, with experiences shaped to support student classroom learning through the use of educationally edifying experiential learning activities, which are at the heart of all our individually crafted itineraries.
Schools who partner with us will benefit from a touring program that is a key asset in the education of students, as well as a standout feature for marketing to prospective students and their families.
Latitude Group Travel is working with leadership teams of Australian schools now, to reimagine their touring programs for 2022 and beyond.
