Simon Bendry is the programme director of the government-funded First World War Centenary Battlefield Tours Programme, run by the UCL Institute of Education (IOE) and tours provider Equity. The free programme gives two students and one teacher from every Secondary school in England the chance to visit the battlefield sites in Ypres and the Somme. There are only four tour seasons left before the programme concludes in spring 2019, and teachers can sign up via www.centenarybattlefieldtours.org.
