What sets us apart

Tailored Trips

Your experience, your way

Wow. Time flies – we’ve been doing this for thirty years! Your experience is backed by a team of experts in their field, be it in safety and operations, community engagement or itinerary planning. Ensuring our safety standards remain high and that our impact overseas is nothing but positive, we build expeditions with you to create the best combination of duration, activities and pre-departure training to inspire your team. Allow the students to determine their own itinerary choices or let us curate the highlights for you and weave in award and curriculum links.

“It was so vaulable. Our students were encouraged to engage with a culture so different from their own, eat different food, book their own accommodation, manage their own budget and embark on challenging trekking journeys. They learnt to be more independent and developed skills that will carry them later in life.”
Samuel Chowles, Teacher, St Alban’s College

Our leaders

A team effort

Ever been on a bad date? Everyone knows what that’s like. We work with some of the best Expedition Leaders in the industry and after you’ve launched we’ll work hard to partner you up with a leader who’s right for you, your team and your chosen destination.

“Our leader was amazing and one of the most extraordinary human beings I have ever met. He struck the balance between guiding our students and allowing them to make mistakes and learn from them. He is extremely knowledgeable and really spent time getting to know the team. He is a true educator and leader.”
Chris Carey, Teacher, Hilton College


One point of contact

You’re busy – we work exclusively with schools and we get it. You need the convenience of dealing with one person, so that’s exactly what we give you – an empowered member of our team who is dedicated to you. We also give your parents and students a dedicated team of friendly faces in our regional offices to take the pressure off you. Unlike many smaller organisations, you can have confidence in our financial stability and robustness – we’re backed by a bigger adventure company, Travelopia, the world's largest collection of specialist travel brands. You don’t have to worry about it, you’re covered.

“World Challenge have been outstanding in their professionalism, the quality of advice and speed of response both at school level and in answering bureaucratic enquiries.”
Walter Czernezkyj, Principal, Urrbrae Agricultural School

Community engagement

Your contribution to the bigger picture

We believe in collaboration, supporting community-led solutions to local challenges. We work in five global action areas aligned with the UN development goals – areas we can responsibly make a meaningful impact. We establish open dialogue with the local people we work alongside to ensure we are strategically supporting their ambitions, not ours. Together, we plan for the long term, ensuring our engagement has a sustainable future without us and we finish what we start. It’s important to us that these opportunities are mutually beneficial, for our students, and the communities who host us.

“Our students have participated in four World Challenge programmes and have never failed to return home with an informed outlook on the world, a passion to do something serious about issues of global injustice and a sense of renewed courage about the possibilities of their future and the purpose of their lives.”
Richard Prideaux, Principal, Beaconhills College
