There are many benefits of taking learning out of the school classroom. A 2015 survey by Learning Away found that residential school outings have a positive impact on relationships between students, while almost 70 per cent of pupils reported an increased understanding of the subject studied on the trip.
But what about the benefits for teachers? While you may think that taking your students on a school trip is simply a way to increase your workload, there are actually a wide variety of benefits for teachers too – many of which will even make your job easier and more rewarding.
Get out of the classroom
With teachers working an average of 54 hours a week, getting away from the classroom and into a real-world environment can inspire and refresh educators just as much as pupils.
