Let's talk about you for a second

As a teacher, selflessness can feel like part of the job description. But let’s take a moment to consider how being a traveling teacher with EF can impact you—as an educator, as a leader of student travel experiences, and yes, as a person, too.

Enjoy world-class travel rewards

Start earning Global Rewards Points as soon as you start enrolling students. Redeem them after your first tour for incredible rewards like student travel scholarships and on-tour upgrades. You can also use your Global Points to explore dreamy destinations—like scenic Rwanda and the streets of Florence—on tours created especially for traveling teachers. Thanks to our educational partnerships around the world, these trips include “only at EF” experiences such as VIP access to the Tour de France and our Ashridge Executive Education program housed at EF's very own castle.

P.S. Check out Rikki's story to see how one EF Group Leader turned her Global Points into an unforgettable travel experience.

Experience a tour before you lead one

Once enrollment is underway, first-time Group Leaders are welcomed into the EF family with training programs designed just for you, at no cost. Our in-person training tours take place in places like San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and New York. There, you’ll learn from both EF staffers and Educational Travel Advisors (experienced Group Leaders who often serve as mentors throughout the planning process) to get a taste of what your own tour will look like. Whether you embark on a training tour or take part in our virtual training program, we’ll make sure you feel prepared and confident before you lead your students on tour.

Put on your future-thinking cap

While you’ll walk away from tour with many tangible rewards, the most important one is the life-changing impact you’ll make on your students. You’ll help them prepare for the future by helping them learn more about the world, themselves, and their place in the world. Plus, they just might get their first taste of a New York slice. And that’s also truly life-changing.

One more thing

For every 10 travelers you enroll, you get a spot on tour, on us. That means you can travel at no cost to you and bring along your dream team of chaperones. Oh, and you might suddenly become the most popular person in the teacher’s room.
