Founded in 2011 Turin Educational Consortium had a clear mission of helping encourage education about different cultures through immersive travel experiences.
Over the last seven years, we’ve established several great programmes that have helped many people explore cultural diversity and similarities. At the heart of these programmes has always been our great host city of Torino.
Need for a more inclusive name
We love TEC very much, but as the programmes have developed to take in many new geographical areas both within Italy and extending to Australia with TecAustralia we decided we needed a new an identity that reflected the very essence of what we plan to do in the future.
Introducing “Travel, Education & Cultures”
Over the last year, we’ve been working hard internally to redefine our identity and what TEC means to us. We are very focused upon the mission, and we realised that it fits so nicely with the TEC acronym, consequently, TEC has become “Travel, Education & Cultures”.
New name, a new site
Over the next few months, we will be introducing you to our new site, TrEduC.com. This will be our new home and will be refocusing on our efforts to bring you unique high-quality learning experiences through immersive travel experiences.
The Travel Education & Cultures offering will be focused on our immersive Tours, our immersive Atelier programmes, our specially designed school and university programmes. All designed to give you our friends more opportunities to learn about different aspects of cultural influences around the world.
TEC – Tours
Our Tours have become popular over the last few years. We aim to build on the successes of these unique itineraries that allow you to gain access to some of the most beautiful hidden gems within Northern Italy, from local wine cellars and local cooking techniques to some of the most amazing library collections in the world. We aim to continue to develop and expand our offerings.
We are also delighted to be able to continue to offer our special Bespoke Tours for groups.
TEC – Atelier
Our Atelier will become the dedicated home to our Art and Craft programmes. Our Atelier programmes will continue to focus on traditional techniques and doing our part to both educate and preserve these methods.
In the coming year, we are delighted to be offering courses in Calligraphy, Renaissance Paintings and Water Colours, Bookbinding and Paper Making, and Fresco painting.
TEC – Schools and Universities
Over the coming year, we will be continuing our work with our partners to develop a growing program of events, tours and experiences for students at both School age and University students. Our programmes can be designed to fit your classes requirements and the time that you have available.
As TEC move into 2019 and beyond, we will be sharing many new and exciting opportunities with you our friends. From all of us here at Travel Education & Cultures we wish you a very special holiday season and look forward to seeing you again in 2019.
Director of TEC
