About Us

This award-winning programme is delivered by the UCL Institute of Education and Equity, who offer a unique and powerful partnership of education and travel expertise.

The programme is designed to provide the opportunity for a minimum of two students and one teacher from every state funded secondary school in England to visit battlefields on the Western Front between 2014 and 2019. The battlefield tours are a key part of the Government's plans to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
