With both companies based in Melbourne, the collaboration between education and industry will benefit Angliss students with real-world expertise and exposure.

It also builds on previous collaborations, including guest lectures on sustainable travel.

To kick off the partnership, Angliss students visited Intrepid HQ to hear from the General Manager of Purpose about becoming a Certified B Corp, tour planning considerations and industry best practices.

Intrepid Travel’s General Manager of Purpose Sara King said: “We have over 30 years’ experience in responsible and sustainable tourism to share with students and look forward to seeing the positive contributions they will make to our industry in the future.”
