Learning Away has provided evidence that residentials are a highly worthwhile and impactful ways of teaching and learning. Brilliant residentials – inclusive and affordable residential trips that are high-quality, led by teachers, integrated into the curriculum, and planned so that learning is embedded and reinforced back in school – provide powerful learning opportunities for young people of all ages, and have an impact on teachers and schools.
This publication outlines the key findings of the Learning Away programme, summarises the compelling evidence of the impact of residentials, explains why they have this impact and provides recommendations for schools and providers wanting to plan and deliver their own brilliant residentials.
