Educational Guide

Talks and Presentations to Students about Safer Travel


An important part of our work is to provide educational materials to young people and support teachers in raising awareness about travelling safely. Statistically, increasing numbers of young people and students in the UK are taking gap years and travelling experiences.

Through the provision of travel education and advice, we are working to equip young travellers with the essential knowledge that they need to stay safe and enjoy fantastic adventures.

Our presentations are offered primarily to Schools, Colleges and Universities. We have trained experienced travellers across the UK to facilitate these discussions in the form of talks and group sessions with students, highlighting the benefits and pitfalls of world travel.

The Time of Your Life

In 2005 we produced a short film, which offered two different scenarios highlighting potential dangers faced by travellers aboard. The objective was to stimulate conversation and get people talking about their personal safety.

“We wanted to speak directly to our next generation of travellers. Highlighting the potential risks involved in world travel, but also to inspire them to travel and take their opportunity to see the world.”

Caroline’s Rainbow Foundation’s education program operates throughout the UK. Each presentation is personalised to the speaker, but all include important verified safety advice and information.


Our sessions usually run for about an hour and include a 15 minute question and answer session. Although they can be tailored to the time available. The verbal presentations are accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation highlighting travel opportunities and situations the speaker has experienced, useful hints, tips and firsthand information. The slides are interlaced with practical visuals to show travel safety awareness strategies and risk assessments as well as preparation and research schedules.

Our aim is to stimulate and inspire students by showing them the amazing travel opportunities available to them, as well as engaging them with safety techniques and raising awareness of potential dangers.

The presentations are offered free of charge, but travel costs will need to be covered and if you would like to make a donation to help us continue our work you are more than welcome. Thank You.

If you are interested in a presentation for your School, College, University or organisation, please get in touch.
