Educational consultancy Exciting Education has unveiled a rating scheme for visitor attractions and tourism venues which welcome school groups and educational trips.
The nationally recognised accreditation and training scheme aims to improve standards of school trips and educational activities.
Exciting Education is a team of professionals from a variety of backgrounds, such as teaching, theatres, arts and sciences. They work with organisations such as schools and businesses which to attract children and families, to provide workshops and other activities.
Rebecca Martin, Exciting Education managing director, said: “Learning outside of the classroom is a key passion of mine and we work with many great visitor attractions who offer excellent packages for school groups and we believe they need to be rewarded and recognised with our new accreditation scheme.”
Accredited venues will be listed on the new Exciting Education website, to give schools and group travel organisers reassurance when selecting venues for trips.
