Meet our Field Study Tutors

Apr 28, 2015


It’s been a really busy time at Rayburn HQ over the last few weeks and we wouldn’t have it any other way! Wherever your chosen destination you can rest assured that the team are working hard to plan an exciting and memorable itinerary for you and your group.

One recent highlight was having all of our Field Study Tutors visit Rayburn House: a chance to undertake some further training, share ideas and record their thoughts (some of which I’ll share with you later). What was most evident though was the amount of knowledge and cumulative years of experience present all in one room.

Field Study Tutors are unique to Rayburn Tours geography trips and can really help to add value to your visit. Not only can they offer a reassuring “arm around your shoulder” from the moment of arrival, they also possess a wealth of knowledge about each of our destination and are very experienced at teaching in the field. They will help bring the landscape to life and impart specialist knowledge and geographical insight to ensure your learning objectives are met and your students inspired.

That’s enough from me. Time you heard from our Field Study Tutors in person. Let me introduce you to Jo Keene, Sheila Urquhart, Ian Geddes, Catherine Close and Shirley Milton. Witness first hand their enthusiasm for geography and their belief in the role they play in supporting the party leader.
