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 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.
The course covers the key legal and practical procedures required of a school’s EVC. It covers the information that establishments need to manage off-site visits. It is a national training course and transferable between employers.
The course is accredited by the Outdoor Education Advisers’ Panel and training will make use of current government literature relating to school visits.
This course is primarily for independent and foundation schools as many local authorities have provision for EVC courses for their schools. However, if this is not the case for your school, you are most welcome to attend this course.
By attending this course delegates will earn 5 CPD points which can be put towards the yearly requirement of 35 CPD points to attain Chartered Geographer status. A certificate of attendance will be given for all delegates.

This event will be held on the premises of the Society and is an in-person event. If the course has to be re-organised then delegates will be given the option to transfer to a future course or receive a full-refund.
