WW1 Centenary Battlefields Tour Programme – DfE Funded

The Institute of Education and STS School Travel Service are delighted to announce that they have been selected to run the First World War Centenary Battlefield Tours Project on behalf of the Department for Education (DfE) and the Department for Communities and Local Government  (DCLG).

The £5.3 million project was announced recently by the Prime Minister, David Cameron and is designed to provide the opportunity for a minimum of two pupils and one teacher from every state funded secondary school in England to visit battlefields on the Western Front between 2014-19.  The battlefield tours are a key part of the Government’s plans to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
