World Challenge


Education Through Exploration

Description

Formed in 1987, World Challenge, part of TUI Travel PLC, is the leading global provider of student-led expeditions.

Each year over 500 leading schools (10,000 students) from 25 countries send teams out on expeditions to breath-taking places like Ecuador, Costa Rica, Borneo and Malawi where they go on to trek, complete projects and immerse themselves in cultural societies.

Challenge, participation, and environment are at the heart of what we do, providing an experience which places students in a strong position to make the most of their future careers.

Many Challengers go on to achieve greatness including Winter Olympics Gold Medallist Lizzy Yarnold (Maya Route, 2006) and former Olympic and Commonwealth 400m Champion Christine Ohuruogu (Bolivia, 2002).

Excellent support All equipment provided was high quality sadly the food provided for the meal was not nutritionally satisfactory which I fed back to the World Challenge team (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13404 )




Well organised and planned throughout our time with World Challenge. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 12921 )

Very varied experience. The people "in country" were 5 stars all the way, their "back office" I would not give one star to, they lacked guidance and leadership or even any suggestions when leaving me with two sick children in Tibet (though were quick to promise parents these pupils would have a fantastic time organised by world challenge - though I was the only person left with them). In particular we waited 8 hours to get an "all clear" to use medicines provided to a child with severe gastro enteritis - absolutely unacceptable and involved me chasing them constantly.
