My Travel Wise

15 mins eLearning

This course aims to increase awareness of the extra risks travellers may encounter based on their gender, sexuality and race. By focussing on personal risk, it makes the individual aware of how to assess their risk, how to prepare and act at their destination. The course is aimed for everyone as it highlights issues other members of their group may face and also makes the learner aware that not all destinations are the same. This course is interspersed with personal stories from three travellers to bring the advice to life and show its relevance in the real world.
