"The website has an automatic search facility and the computer does all the work for the teacher - it is a quick and simple system," said Jim Hammett, chief executive of CCI.
More than 160 providers in the UK are affiliated to CCI, offering facilities and activities for school, church and youth groups. For more information, see the website www.cci.org.ukschooljourneys
