Programmes de voyage pour les éducateurs

2022/2023 Travel Programs

Ces programmes sont conçus pour les éducateurs qui cherchent à s'immerger afin de grandir linguistiquement, culturellement et d'acquérir de nouveaux outils professionnels. Chaque expérience est adaptée au groupe spécifique. Rejoignez l'une de nos expériences programmées ou créez la vôtre ! Si vous avez un groupe de 12 éducateurs ou plus, nous pouvons concevoir un programme juste pour vous !

Tous nos programmes pour enseignants incluent des ateliers et des ressources que vous pouvez utiliser immédiatement dans vos classes !

Tous les participants à nos programmes d'enseignement peuvent gagner jusqu'à 50 heures de crédits de formation continue ou heures d'horloge pour le renouvellement du certificat ! De plus, au cours de certains de nos programmes, vous pouvez obtenir jusqu'à trois crédits d'études supérieures moyennant des frais supplémentaires !

Les éducateurs sont également invités à rejoindre l'un des programmes de voyage Globetrotter et à recevoir des crédits de développement professionnel ou des heures d'horloge ! Les programmes Globetrotter sont adaptés aux familles et accueillent les enfants de 6 ans et plus afin que les éducateurs puissent voyager avec leur famille !

Frequently asked questions

What if I want to go but cannot travel on the determined dates?

You are welcome to book a private group- we must have 6 or more to book new dates and as long as we have availability we can do it!

Can I book my own airfare?

Yes, starting in 2022 adult program participants will be able to book their own airfare. We will continue to offer the option of booking airfare for an additional fee. LW5S Education has a contract with Delta Airlines.

If I have 6 students enroll in student programs, do they all have to enroll in the same program in order for me to travel for free?

No. You can have students enroll in any of our student travel programs in order to travel for free.

Can family members travel with me?

Yes, however, some of our programs will be conducted in French or Spanish. Certain programs are adults only. Programs that are open to all family members will be marked "Family Friendly."

Can we arrive earlier or leave later or earlier than the group?

Yes, as long as you arrive at the program on the day the program begins so you do not miss your group.

What happens if I have to cancel?

We know that things happen, unfortunately we cannot refund anything you have paid. Our travel partners do not refund and therefore we cannot refund. We ask that you be absolutely certain that you would like to travel with us before registering. If for some reason, COVID-19 prevents us from traveling, we will postpone the trip to the following year's dates.

Do you have a minimum and maximum number of participants?

Yes, we must have at least 6 participants in a group. If your group does not meet the minimum, we will move you to the next set of dates. The exception is our France and Spain programs that do not require a minimum. We cap our groups at 12. We like to keep the groups small so there is a maximum amount of learning and interactions.

What is the registration timeline?

Educator programs register up until 90 days prior to departure or until we have 12 participants, whichever comes first. If you would like to register but we are within the 90 days of departure, e-mail us to see if there is a spot! We may be able to let you in! info@lw5seducation.com

Can I travel on the teacher program and put my kids in the student program at the same time?

Yes! We have this happen quite often actually! In fact, Elizabeth does this every year!

How often do you run these programs?

These programs are annual. We run them every year, usually around the same dates. Sometimes we run more than one program every year.

How do you keep us up to date and communicate with us?

We set up a group on the LW5S site for each group that contains updates, paperwork to fill out, and resources you can use with your students. We also hold live travel meetings via Microsoft Teams to keep everyone updated.

Can you arrange special trips for private groups?

Yes! We have done this lots of times! If you have a group of at least 6, we can definitely arrange a trip for you, on the dates that you prefer! We can do this for all of our programs.

Do you have teacher programs for other languages besides French?

Yes! Our Morocco program is in English and is open to all educators. We also have a program in Senegal that is conducted in English or French that all educators can join. We have a program in Spain for Spanish teachers and we have language learning programs for teachers in France, Spain, and Senegal.
