Most educational institutions now have an extensive overseas travel programme and ‘duty-of-care’ is no longer an ethical concern but a legal obligation. The risks of working and studying in regions of conflict or natural disaster and the threats of targeted attacks and terrorism are increasingly unpredictable. Whilst most trips are usually incident free, it’s still important to put the necessary measures in place to protect your staff, students, institution and reputation.

Securewest understands the unique challenges faced by this sector, from stakeholder buy-in and knowing where your staff and students are, to keeping them safe from dangers and responding quickly to incidents should they happen.


Off-site trips create new experiences and learning opportunities for pupils – however gaps in planning can expose them to more risks than is necessary.
