Educational Visits Coordinator Training

Learning outside the classroom has always been an integral part of a child’s education, providing the opportunity to develop key personal and social skills. The Educational Visits Coordinator’s (EVC's) role is to help the school fulfil its Health and Safety obligations for off-site school visits, by being involved in the planning and management of all educational visits. Our regular courses are designed to support EVCs in their roles by covering the legal and practical procedures required of their position.
