NT Learning Adventures, a collection of over 40+ tourism operators in the Northern Territory, have been working towards breaking down the barriers of school group travel to the NT, and are now offering grants to schools that participate in an NT Learning Adventure.
Not many people realise, but the Northern Territory holds some of the most important historical events and artefacts, immersive living cultural experiences, impressive sustainability programs and much more. NT Learning Adventures have worked on creating links with NT destinations and touring products with the Australian Curriculum. Tour operators have been revising their current educational product, and improving their offerings by providing risk assessment; safety and security standards; and establishing direct educational links with the curriculum just to mention a few.
This year Tourism NT is promoting a $1000 grant offering to interstate schools that participate in the grant program. The grant is run by Tourism NT and aims to provide the opportunity to travel to the NT and experience all we have to offer at a more affordable price. By providing a grant direct to the school, allows the savings to be directed back to the student and their family, and in return experience an intellectual and unforgettable school excursion to be remembered for years to come.
Grants are available until 26March 2016 for travel up until 30 June 2016.
