School Travel Forum & Learning Outside the Classroom

SkiTeam4 is an Assured Member of the School Travel Forum and a LOtC Quality Badge holder.
Criteria laid down by external bodies are, however, only a starting point. From its inception, SkiTeam4 has operated to the very highest standards in the UK. When it comes to safety and best practice, SkiTeam4 has always gone the extra mile to ensure that only the very best is good enough.
Our company’s Managing Director must hold his/her own personal Austrian government-issued tour operator’s licence. The company itself is licensed by the Austrian Government Authorities and subject to their stringent controls. SkiTeam4 is audited and accredited by the Austrian Government Tourist Authorities. These additional controls do not apply to UK companies.
On top of this, ST4 now has its own ISO-qualified Quality Manager who is responsible for ensuring that all of our internal processes are controlled to ensure that all trips run even more smoothly than before. 

Add Excursions with Educational Content to your Ski Trip

Both Travel abroad and skiing are educational activities in their own right. It is possible, however, to add an excursion with serious educational content to your ski trip in one of the following ways:

add an extra day and night to your 6 nights in resort, turning your trip in to 10 days by coach or 9 days by air. In this case you would continue to have 6 full days skiing plus one extra day with educa-tional content.

alternatively, you may reduce your skiing by one day and have 5 days skiing plus one day with educa-tional content. This would mean that coach and air trips remain 9 and 8 days respectively.

Expect more with SkiTeam4

As members of the School Travel Forum and recipient of the Learning Outside the Classroom accreditation, we are pleased to offer the following suggestions for excursion opportunities, which can be combined within your ski trip. The LOtC badge is a national benchmark that accredits providers for Learning Outside the Classroom, which offer good quality educational experiences and manage risk effectively. Another assurance of the quality of arrangements you can expect from SkiTeam4.
