The Educators Study Tour brings hundreds of teachers and principals from Australia to Israel for 10 unforgettable days of experiential learning about Israel’s rich heritage and the past, present, and future of the country.
The goals of the study tour include:
To provide educators with content-driven resources that promote eco-Zionist and social values, adapted to meet the needs of Australian communities and schools.
To strengthen the connection between Israeli and Australian communities and educational institutions.
To expose educators to the beauty of Israel and the Jewish world.
Throughout the program, the educators tour the country, getting to know the land, connecting with local students and educators, and visiting KKL-JNF educational and environmental projects throughout Israel. They participate in high-level educational programming designed to impart the values of Zionism and environmental responsibility and strengthen their connection with the people, land and heritage of Israel.
While the educators are deeply inspired by their experiences, the greatest beneficiaries are their future students. Each educator must present an educational project that they intend to implement in their home school, based on the various activities and tools that they receive during their time in Israel.
