Peace of mind
You wouldn’t let an unqualified teacher work in your school and we feel the same way about our leaders.Lead for us
While other providers employ a friendly face with a first aid certificate we look up every mountain side and down every bush track to find leaders who are technically qualified to work in the environments in which we operate.
We recruit, train and retain people who have passion for youth development, ethical travel and cultural immersion. Our leaders seek out challenge, know the risks, find the fun. They’re the first to engage but the last to speak. They’re confident, competent and ready for the journey.
Our Leaders are always there to actively step in on matters of safety and to avoid budgeting catastrophes but moreover, they’re role models.In South Africa we’ve invested in and trained local leaders, so 90% of our trips are led by South Africans.
We believe it takes a team to lead a group so we place one of our professional Expedition Leaders with every team, as well as fully funding at least one pastoral School Leader from the school. This gives our approach to leadership both balance and strength. Teachers will be introduced to their leader well ahead of departure so they can get to know each other.
