The acclaimed Objective Gap Year Travel Safety Training course has been running since 2003. held in London. Also offering private courses and virtual (online) course option. Delivering courses for schools, colleges, universities and short travel safety talks to 6th form, (Year 12 and 13 students and attending gap fairs).   

We are keen that young travellers make the most of their adventures, to enrich their lives and broaden their education which often makes them more interesting to a future employer. However, most young travellers will have little experience of the day-to-day challenges of overseas travel; dealing with dodgy taxi drivers, avoiding crime, sexual harassment, staying healthy, managing money, inoculations and not getting sick abroad. 


one-day course for 6th formers, post-university and college students

One-day course, providing gap year and post-university travellers with confidence and knowledge to explore far and wide. We also help with route planning and advising the best times of year to visit countries.

Gap Year Travel and Safety Talks and Courses for students in Years 12/13. Urban Safety Courses for 11 to 14 years or 15 to 18 years.

It's all about ‘thinking safe’. We use our R.E.A.D.E philosophy to help the individual avoid trouble at the earliest opportunity.

  • Recognise the indicator of potential trouble in order to ...
  • Evaluate the situation so that one can ...
  • Avoid trouble or at least ...
  • Defuse the threat and then ...
  • Extract to safety.
