Experience a tour before you lead one

We want you to feel prepared and confident when you find the perfect tour to lead. That’s why experienced Group Leaders from districts throughout the country, along with EF staff, will host teacher travel groups in Paris, Panama, Rome, Madrid, Dominican Republic, Berlin, Barcelona, Lisbon, or Belize on an international training tour after you enroll eight students. Your spot on a training tour is covered by EF to help you learn what it takes to successfully lead students abroad and gain useful tips and advice along the way.

Through our blended learning model, you will:
  • Experience all aspects of an EF tour before taking students abroad
  • Understand and facilitate experiential learning in a global context
  • Gain global awareness and improve cross-cultural understanding
  • Explore ways to align your tour with school
  • Discover ways to infuse a global perspective in your classroom

Our training tours are awesome—but don’t just take our word for it. Watch to see what teachers like you had to say about their experience abroad.
