As a teacher, selflessness can feel like part of the job description. But let’s take a moment to consider how traveling with EF can impact you—as an educator, as a leader of student travel experiences, and yes, as a person, too.
Start earning Global Rewards Points as soon as you start enrolling students. Then redeem them after your first tour for incredible rewards ranging from educator-only conventions—in places like the French Riviera, Rwanda, and South Korea—to personal vacations in the destination of your choice to student travel scholarships. For even more exclusive opportunities, we also offer unique, “only at EF” travel experiences in conjunction with some of our special partners. (Think: VIP access to the Tour de France or our Ashridge Executive Education program housed at EF’s very own castle.)
P.S. If you’re willing to shed a few happy tears, read how educators Caitlin and Tim put their points to use.
EF offers a wide range of opportunities to connect with other globally minded teachers and grow as an educator. After all, in order to help your students become lifelong learners, you need to be one yourself.
Meet fellow educators at EF’s Global Education Symposium or explore the world’s education systems on a teacher-only professional learning tour.
Get credit for growing
Earn up to six graduate-level credits or 45 professional learning hours or points—all while exploring new destinations. See details here.
Get bragging rights
When you partner with EF, you get access to exclusive events like Harvard’s Think Tank on Global Education and the Nobel Prize Teacher Summit.
Experience a tour before you lead one
Once enrollment is underway, first-time Group Leaders are welcomed to the EF family on a free training tour to places like Paris, Panama, and Berlin. There, teachers learn from both EF staffers and Global Education Ambassadors (experienced Group Leaders who often serve as mentors throughout the planning process). Our training tours give you a taste of what your own tour will look like—and most importantly, make you feel prepared and confident before you lead your students abroad.
While you’ll walk away from tour with many tangible rewards, the most important one is the life-changing impact you’ll make on your students. You’ll help them prepare for the future by helping them learn more about the world, themselves, and their place in the world. Plus, they just might get their first taste of authentic gelato. And that’s also truly life-changing.
One more thing
For every six travelers you enroll, you get a free spot on tour. That means you can travel for free and bring along your dream team of chaperones. Oh, and you might suddenly become the most popular person in the teacher’s room.
