Travel with purpose

Welcome to ECE

ECE create group educational, cultural, special interest and sports programmes each with a unique point of difference and developed to meet your, our customer’s, specific requirements.

We open up the countries we visit by combining hands-on enriching cultural activities and outdoor adventures with access to fascinating people, places and events.

Whilst the majority of our programmes are youth focussed and enjoyed as part of a group, we also offer specific opportunities to participate as individuals and for those that might have a little more time on their sides to enjoy our adult programmes.

In the world of corporate events management and business tourism, our attention to detail, access to unique people, places and events means we are the ideal provider for bespoke corporate programmes.

Based in Chislehurst, South of London, our programmes operate throughout the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe and beyond.

The ECE team is passionately committed to delivering programmes that offer life enriching moments to be savoured for many years to come. Such experiences reflect well for future access to universities and employment opportunities.

In 2009, ECE received The Queen’s Award for Enterprise – “The Corporate Knighthood.”

Environmental Policy Statement - 02.01.15

ECE Travel LTD will control and manage its activities and programmes responsibly to preserve environmental and social resources ensuring risks to the health safety and welfare of its employees, customers and the general public are identified and action is taken to minimise or eliminate the effects wherever possible.

ECE Travel Ltd’s responsible educational travel is about respecting the different communities, places and cultures that we visit and where possible actively integrating or supporting them. Our programmes can be a great boost or support to the local communities in which we operate. We endeavour to use local providers - many are family owned and managed, we encourage our programmes to positively explore the local environment and to support and immerse within the local community.

This philosophy has enabled us to grow with the communities in which we operate, providing community immersion and interaction within many of our programmes whilst acting and behaving in a socially and environmentally responsible way.

The objectives of the policy are:

  • To comply with its legal obligations under the current Health, Safety and Welfare Act and the Environmental Protection Act, together with all other applicable statutory provisions and relevant codes of practice.
  • To promote health, safety and environmental awareness throughout the organisation and on our programmes.
  • To maintain a safe and healthy working environment for its employees, with adequate facilities appropriate to the nature of the business activities.
  • To minimise the social impact of the company activities and avoid damage to the environment through regular reviews of the programmes and business operations from environmental and management systems audits.
  • To undertake environmental impact studies/considerations as part of any programme or product inclusion and in any company activity.
