Partners and Accreditation
Not only are we accredited by key industry bodies, we’re actively engaged with them – putting us at the forefront of good standards of practice.
Our expertise and high standards are reflected in our prestigious accreditations and key industry partners. World Challenge was the first, and remains one of the very few providers of school overseas expeditions to hold the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge and at the same time be externally assessed as compliant to BS8848, showing good safety practice. We remain actively engaged with the development of both standards, ensuring World Challenge is at the heart of ensuring quality and safety on overseas expeditions.
