Experience Quest

Fulfil the IB CAS Requirement through a Q4C Expedition

Expeditions with Quest4Change provide International Baccalaureate students a unique opportunity to fulfil their CAS requirement. CAS aims for students to actively learn from the experience of doing real tasks, beyond the confines of a classroom, to enhance their personal and interpersonal, social and civic development.

  • Creativity
    Planning fundraising events and developing resources for use during the project.
  • Action
    Physical activities undertaken during the expedition and in the physical preparation needed prior to departure.
  • Service
    Completion of a worthwhile and beneficial volunteer project for the service of communities in Africa and South America.

Core requirements of CAS run in parallel with the aims of a Quest4Change expedition: 

  • Real, purposeful activities, with significant outcomes
    Whether completing the construction of a school classroom, summiting a mountain or learning to work together as an effective team, a Quest4Change expedition provides your students with a range of worthwhile and inspirational challenges.
  • Personal challenge - tasks must extend the student and be achievable in scope
    Expeditions are designed to challenge and inspire, tailored to the needs of your students. Your students will push themselves throughout the expedition; physically during treks & activities, emotionally at the project sites and culturally as they immerse themselves in new environments.
  • Thoughtful consideration, such as planning, reviewing progress and reporting
    Your students will be guided through all aspects of pre-departure preparation, both mental and physical, with 1-2 training weekends and guidance on fundraising ventures.
  • Reflection on outcomes and personal learning
    We hold a debriefing session with your students on their return home to encourage them to reflect on what they have achieved, the skills they have learnt and how these can be applied to their later lives at university and work.

All expeditions are tailored to each school's needs and requirements, so if you are looking to put together an expedition for your IB students then do contact us to discuss your options.
