On a Discover the World Education trip, health and safety is a top priority. To that end, we have a full and comprehensive Safety Management System.
The School Travel Forum
We are assured members of the School Travel Forum, a not-for-profit trade organisation founded in 2002 to promote and safeguard standards in educational travel.
As an assured member of the STF, Discover the World Education adheres to a rigorous code of practice and safety management standards and is externally verified each year by suitably qualified independent health and safety professionals to ensure continuing compliance.
For more information, please visit the School Travel Forum website >
The Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge
We have been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge in recognition of our safety standards as well as planning and provision of educational tours that meet schools’ academic or pastoral needs. This means our trips are pre-approved by the Outdoor Education Advisers’ Panel and recognised as such on trip planning platforms such as Evolve. The UK Government Department for Education recommends booking residential tours with a Quality Badge holder.

Safety Management System
- The accommodation, excursions and transport offered to your group all have the necessary insurance and licences, and we only use suppliers who have passed the necessary audits.
- For each tour, you will be supplied with detailed health and safety guidance. These documents are regularly reviewed and updated and will assist greatly with your trip planning and risk assessments.
- In addition to working closely with you throughout the planning of your trip, we will provide 24 hour support to your group whilst you are away, giving complete peace of mind.

Discover the World Education acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We aim to provide a safe and child centred environment where students are protected from abuse whilst participating in our school trips.
