COGO Primary Survey Results
At COGO Travel we are always looking for new ways to improve our residentials and ensure we are offering high quality experiences linking to the national curriculum.
With over 24 years experience in organising educational breaks across the UK and Europe, we pride ourselves in being able to offer brilliant residentials and encourage learning outside the classroom.
At the beginning of the year we asked teachers to share their experiences and opinions on what makes a brilliant residential, along with key learning outcomes for both students and themselves. The answers we received showed us a true insight into residentials, and a better understanding of exactly what both students and teachers expect from a residential with COGO Travel.
We asked everything from why schools book with a travel company and desired destinations, to benefits expected and the key skills gained from a school residential. Thanks to the survey results we have pulled together some interesting results. See below for a taster of the information gained or download the full results:
