Since its inception the School Travel Forum has won widespread recognition and support for the way it simplifies and provides essential reassurance for leaders looking to organise study, sports & ski trips.

Teachers using an STF Assured Member can be secure knowing that their travel partner:

  • Understands and facilitates the needs of educational travel
  • Manages safety effectively
  • Offers fair terms and conditions, and the best financial security
  • Is fully inspected every year by independent experts

From its beginning the STF initiative won the support of the ASCL, ATL, NAHT, NUT and Voice.  It was welcomed by the Outdoor Education Advisors Panel (OEAP) and the DCSF, and NASUWT advised members wishing to organise school trips to use companies that had this type of scheme.

Our standards have been adopted as the benchmark for all companies operating Study, Sports and Cultural Tours by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom's Quality Badge award.  This provides for the first time a national accreditation combining the essential elements of provision - learning and safety - into one easily recognisable and trusted award.
